Lucy Gratton



Lucy has been working on Schools Half Marathon since the very first Schools Half Marathon trial event in Shropshire, as part of Shrewsbury Half Marathon, in 2017. The trial was such a success that the first official Schools Half Marathon Shropshire took place in 2018, and in 2019 the event welcomed a total of 1,800 pupils from 32 schools.

As a mum herself, Lucy is passionate about helping youngsters to enjoy regular activity and experience the many benefits that sport can bring.

“It has been fantastic to see the growth of Schools Half Marathon as part of Schools Running Movement and incredibly rewarding to see so many young runners achieve their very own half marathon. I feel proud to see what a difference Schools Half Marathon is making and am incredibly excited for the year ahead in Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.”
