Hello, My name is Alex Cann and I want to bring my love of running and all it brings to you. My passion for running and the running lifestyle has grown considerably since I started 12 years ago. After the completion of my first race, I caught the running bug and have since gone further and quicker. I have developed a broad knowledge on how to stay injury free, look after my body, how food impacts performance and well-being and how to stay motivated even on dark, cold wet winter nights.
Here is a few of my proudest achievements:
- Lakeland 50 mile Ultra Marathon – 10 hours 59 mins 68th/1200 (July 2021)
- 50 (51.5) Mile Ultra Marathon in 8 hours 45 mins – 14th 2017 (8 hours 38 – 21st 2019)
- 35 Mile Gritstone Grind Ultra Marathon in 6 hours 6 minutes – 6th Place (Sep 2019)
- Gritstone Grind Ultra Marathon again in 6 hours 31 seconds – 3rd Place (Sep 2021)
- 2hr 57min Marathon – Chester Marathon 2019
- 3 London Marathons
- Half Marathon PB of 1:23 2016
- 10k PB of 35:51 2020
- 5k PB of 17:19 2020
And my goals to achieve:
- Complete a 100 mile race
- Win a race
- Promote the love of running, being active and leading a healthy lifestyle.
- Use my knowledge to help everyone reach their ambition
