Running is Life | Introducing Ellie Lacey - Blacks Ambassador

In late 2016 Ellie Lacey was in Uganda organising a marathon and running every inch of the course. In January 2017 she had 48 hours to live. Sudden and unexpected liver failure left her in immediate need of a transplant. Thankfully, it came.

Ellie survived. 18 months later she is living to honour her donor and her second chance, squeezing life for all the experience it can offer. She embodies the values that Blacks holds dear: resilience, passion, determination and a desire for adventure. We are proud to introduce her as our Ambassador and to tell her story.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
