ANGHARAD JENK­INS

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

Re­turn­ing from in­jury is Angharad’s top pri­or­ity – that and en­joy­ing the rest of the sum­mer be­fore start­ing work in vet­eri­nary medicine. She re­ally got into trail run­ning as a stu­dent when she joined the uni­ver­sity’s run­ning club. As a for­mer hockey player, Angharad was ready to tackle a new chal­lenge and quickly got in­volved in races – en­ter­ing events all the way up to half-marathon length.

“Two years ago I ran 30km up and around Snow­don dur­ing the first Love Trails fes­ti­val,” she re­calls. “It was the most chal­leng­ing run I’ve ever done both men­tally and phys­i­cally, but I would go back and do it all again in a heart­beat. Be­ing a sunny, clear day the views from the top were breath­tak­ing and it was great be­ing able to share the mo­ment with such an amaz­ing group of peo­ple.”
