After the success of the first in of the Run With Chrissie series in Leeds, Chrissie Wellington is now inviting runners to join her for a 5k run in London. The current Ironman world champion will host the next run in the series on Sunday, February 26.
Triathletes and runners are invited to join Chrissie, patron of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, and take part in a 5K training run in Richmond Park ahead of an hour's training with the world champion and British triathlon coaches.
Chrissie commented: "Since becoming a patron of the Appeal in 2011 and having been inspired myself by Jane I want to do everything I can to support the charity. To be able to host yet another event like this and share my passion with people, while raising funds is incredible."
On the success of the previous 5k, Chrissie added: "The event we held in Leeds was fantastic. It was great to meet so many budding sports men and women who not only are interested in triathlon and running but who continue to support the Appeal."
Having completed her first triathlon back in 2004, Chrissie Wellington is undefeated at the Ironman distance and is now four-time world champion following her win at Kona in October last year.
Following the 5k run and training session participants have the opportunity to pre-register for a buffet lunch at Roephampton University ahead of a Q&A session with Chrissie.To book your place, visit the Run With Chrissie website.
