Running with the Stars – Hannah England & Luke Gunn Training Session – Wed 15th Mar

, ,

Well the week has arrived for Hannah England and Luke Gunn to join us for our training session….exciting!

This should be a fantastic and truly inspiring evening, so don’t forget to come at 6.30pm!!  We’ll be at Arden School on the Astro to warm up, then off for a run and back for Q and A afterwards, inside in a classroom.  You need to get there for 6.30pm or you’ll miss out. 

Hannah England

Hannah is a British middle-distance running athlete who specialises in the 800 meters, 1500 meters and mile run. At 1500 m, she is the 2011 World Championship silver medallist and finished fourth at the 2013 World Championships. She also competed at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. England is one of only three British woman in history (as of 2014) to have run under two minutes for 800 m and nine minutes for 3000 m.  Her parkrun time is 17.18 – something to aim for girls; and half marathon time 86.36 – even the boys would be proud of that!
