Sabrina Pace-Humphreys is an award-winning businesswoman, an ultra-runner, a social justice activist, a mother of four and grandmother of three. She is co-founder and trustee of the fast-growing community and campaigning charity Black Trail Runners and is also a well-known ultra-marathon runner.
Sabrina took up running in 2009 as a tool to manage her post-natal depression and, nine years later, completed the Marathon des Sables, a 250km multi-stage ultra-marathon across the Sahara Desert. She has run many ultras since, including perhaps Britain's most brutal, The Spine Race - a 268 mile race along the length of The Pennine Way. She is also now the author of a book, Black Sheep; a story of Rural Racism, Identity & hope.
Claire and I wanted to chat to her about her running 'why', running for mental health, experiencing 'rural racism' and The Spine vs Marathon Des Sables!
