I made this screen for International Women’s Day, as a celebration of six women and their contribution to women’s running.
Violet Piercy, Diane Leather, Julia Chase Brand, Florence Ilot, Sarah Attir and Joan Benoit.
I’m a long distance runner myself so I have good reason to be grateful to these girls.
Thanks to women like them I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to take part in many exhilarating competitive races all over the world; through breathtaking countryside, down famous city streets, along coastal paths and across a few gruelling mountain ranges.
This year I hope to run my ninth marathon in Amsterdam.
I had to cram a lot of information onto each panel to tell their individual stories of determination and chutzpah but the overall message remains very simple.
“Who run the world? Girls”
