“The atmosphere is fantastic!”

“Hi I’m Claire and absolutely over the moon to be chosen as ambassador for Durham City Run, I started running around 6 years ago after not being sporty at all during my younger years it was something I didn’t think I’d be able to do but after my Cousin died from Cancer at the age of 38 I decided I wanted to raise some funds for Cancer research.

I decided I’d run the great north run and found that I loved running so much I didn’t want to stop. I had so many people say to me “I can’t run” so I then decided to start up my own ladies running club called Silky Sole Sisters.

I met so many great friends and loved watching the achievements the Ladies did from being none runners to running Marathons. My group have ran all of the Durham City runs and is a favourite or ours as the atmosphere is fantastic and we are all looking forward to being apart of it again this year.”
