Runner Feature - Emily Carr RunThrough Running Club London

I just saw in an email giving me my results of the Warwick Half Marathon that you sometimes blog about runners who come to your events, so I thought I’d send my story over. I’ve only done Carsington Water Half Marathon and the Warwick Half Marathon so far, but I’m definitely going to continue to come to more events because they’re so fantastically organised and the atmosphere always fills me with so much joy and positivity.

My running journey goes a bit like this…

I’ve been running since I was 13, and I’ve always loved it, and relied on it for my physical and mental wellbeing. However, when my beautiful mam passed away in 2021 I threw myself into running even more as a way of coping with grief. It’s my perfect therapy. I’m now training for the London Marathon and I’ve been using RunThrough events as part of my training and they’ve been excellent.

Like I say, the atmosphere at the events is just so supportive, welcoming, and inspiring, and I treasure every moment that I’m lucky enough to be part of this running community. I recently ran the Warwick Half Marathon and beat my previous PB by 14 minutes! I completed it in 1:44 which I genuinely thought was just impossible for me to do!

Anyways, thank you so much for your events – I can’t wait to do more.

Best wishes,
