NEW BOOK COMING SOON!

 

'Pioneers In Bloomers', the remarkable but largely forgotten story of Britain's 19th century female professional pedestrians - known as 'pedestriennes'. Dozens of them performed incredible feats of long-distance walking, often

alone and in dangerous surroundings,

to entertain the public and earn themselves a living.  They were

pilloried, prosecuted, abused and even physically attacked, but these brave

souls paved the way for modern

women to enjoy the right to take

part in sporting activity in public.

 

Publication in late 2021 or

early 2022 - watch this space!

 

 

ONE THOUSAND & COUNTING!   That's me (the one in red socks) pictured with Tiptree clubmates around the time I chalked up

my 1,000th race.  Injury and old age is now taking its toll, so sadly there's unlikely to be more big milestones any time soon!
