Shelli started running as an 11 yr old with her local club, quickly moving straight onto the trails, and 26yrs later she is still going strong. She completed her first 25 mile trail race at 13yrs, with a 56 ml trail ultra at 15yrs, since this date Shelli has completed numerous ultras including the hardmoors 55, 60,110 and 160, along with UTMB in 2014,
Whilst Shelli is at home on any distance she excels at the longer ultra-marathons with an outstanding achievement in the 2014 160 mile Hardmoors 160 finishing in 40hrs 36 minutes setting a new female course record and finishing 2nd overall.
