Samantha Harrison’s running journey: from beginner to chasing the Olympic dream

Crossing the 2023 TCS London Marathon finish line as first female Brit in a time of 2:25:59 is no mean feat, and for Samantha Harrison (Charnwood, Vince Wilson) she is still only in the infancy of her running career. From representing Team England at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games to winning a team medal on the international stage at the World Half Marathon Championships, Harrison certainly has an impressive CV, but where did it all start? We recently caught up with Sam at the National Running Show to gain a little insight into her running journey so far.
