Katrina Completes Trio of 10k Treks for Charity

By July 13, 2018Stories

Our founder and Managing Director, Katrina Cliffe, has successfully completed a trio of 10k runs, and a mini-triathlon to raise money for babyloss charity, Tommy’s.

Over the last two months, Katrina has completed three 10k runs in Manchester, Lindley and Leeds, plus a mini triathlon, which has seen Katrina raise over £1,000 in sponsorship for the charity who support research into miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

Over the past 14 years, Katrina and her husband John Cliffe, have collectively raised over £10,000 for Tommy’s the baby charity.

We’re all very proud of Katrina for completing these physical challenges for such a good cause and can’t believe she managed to beat her personal best, twice!

Katrina commented: Babyloss is an issue which affects thousands of families every year but is still rarely talked about. Babyloss has a profound physical and mental impact both in the aftermath and many years later which is why I continue to support such a vital organisation. The runs themselves were a huge challenge as I only started training mid-April and the heat during all four events was horrible, but I am proud that with each one my time improved and I finished with a 10k PB”.

Even though Katrina has already raised a significant amount for the charity, she has no plans to stop, stepping up her distances to take on the York 10 Mile run in October, and the Leeds half marathon next year.
