I’d like to thank Ellie for spending the time with us especially as we all battle with the coronavirus lock down. It’s great that Skype and Ecamm Live (the broadcasting programme I use) exist so we can still get together virtually.

Do listen to Ellie’s podcast interview with Dylan Bowman here for more on her amazing ultra running career.
