Niki's 10K triumph

Niki's 10K triumph

Whilst the rest of us were enjoying a relaxing bank holiday, our Operations Manager, Niki Morgan, was running the Severn Bridge 10K race that crosses the old Severn Bridge between England and Wales. Not only did she complete the race but she claimed the top spot as the first female out of 500 runners. A fantastic achievement.

Once she'd got her breath back she told us "I was thrilled to be first woman, especially as I'm no spring chicken at 54. I like to show that getting older doesn't mean you can't still push and achieve your goals. The race has a brilliant atmosphere and is superbly organised. It's not completely flat but compared with the Everest Marathon which I did in 1995 (which is what inspired me to subsequently join Mountain Kingdoms), the incline is nothing!"

Huge congratulations Niki from all your friends at Mountain Kingdoms, but I think we'll stick to walking!
