Allie Bailey describes herself as an ‘ordinary person with infinite possibilities’. An ultrarunner and adventurer, she has five world firsts to her name, and has run almost 100 marathons and ultras all over the world since taking up running seven years ago. Allie is passionate about promoting the benefits of running as therapy in the spheres of mental health and confidence building, and is a die hard champion for female participation in the sport. She has recently founded Ultra Awesome – an online community that aims to inspire and support more people to take the step up to ultra distance and adventure running. Allie also co-presents the Bad Boy Running Podcast and, when not out testing routes, can be found being dragged around the Mendips by her four dogs.
