We're delighted to have Amy as an ambassador for the firm. Amy was a double English schools champion winning the cross country title and 3k on the track. She also won the National Cross Country as a junior and was selected to run for Great Britain at European and World Cross Country championships and in international track competitions. She then took a break from running to start a family and become an English teacher.

After missing competitive running she set herself the target of running for Team GB. In 1999, in her senior debut, she ran for GB in the World Cross Country Champs and then turned her attention to the marathon. In 2014, she was selected to run for England at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, following her success at the London marathon - as the first female Briton across the line.

Amy still runs but has turned her hand to helping others achieve their running ambitions, whatever their ability level, by sharing her own experiences. She is passionate about promoting the benefits of running to adults and children alike.

"They are very professional, respond promptly, always discuss the monthly bill and have, so far, provided us with excellent advice in connection with employment issues. I have been very satisfied."
