It’s with great pleasure we can announce another 10 athletes that will be part of the annual Fast10 on the website. 

Every year we follow the journeys and adventure of a handful of excellent British and Irish athletes, from mountain runners to track specialists, to give an insight into some of the exiting talents in endurance running.

After 2019 saw European champions crowned, national vests earned and a whole host of valuable lessons and guidance from the 10, we knew the next bunch had to keep a high standard.

Over the next few weeks we will feature an introductory profile for the athletes below, but to start the ball rolling we’ll just list the 10 to get everyone as excited as we are.

We’ve kept mountain and ultra runners in the mix, added a National cross country Champion, some track specialists, marathoners and plenty of serial racers.

So with no further ado:
