Bea Berger Profile

Why did you start running?
I started running during PE in school, and soon fell in love with XC. My Dad would write me ‘sick notes’ for Food Tech and French so I could do XC instead. My sick notes soon became ‘sorry’ notes to my Dad, sorry I’m late home and covered in mud!

What/who motivates you to run?

My boys motivate me to run and having a working cocker spaniel who needs regular exercise is great too.

My week usually consists of a recovery run on Monday, club run on Tuesday, regular runs Thursday/Friday and a LSR at the weekend.

Favourite session?
Favourite session is a LSR on the trails, taking photos along the way and generally enjoying myself.

Road or trail?
Trail as much as possible.
