Sophie Power

Sophie Power is a GB 24-hour ultrarunner, mum of three, and Founder of SheRACES. In 2010, she signed up for the Marathon des Sables, never having run more than a mile. She has since run over 40 ultramarathons all over the world, from Bhutan to Iceland, including the 153-mile Spartathlon and the 268-mile Summer Spine. 

Sophie came to the world's attention with a picture of her breastfeeding her 3-month-old baby whilst running the 106-mile Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (UTMB).  Since then, she has advocated for women's rights in sports, founding She RACES, a campaign to make races better for women, which has had a global impact.  Sophie is passionate about supporting mothers to be active in pregnancy and beyond, making a film about her struggles returning to running postpartum with a prolapse.

At the age of 40 she won her first GB vest with a PB running 235.7km in 24 hours and most recently finished top Brit at the World Championships in Taiwan.
