Since first entering competitive triathlons in 2006 Chrissie graduated to the ultra-Iron Man competition. Consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile run, which is marathon distance – a challenge in itself!

Her remarkable strength and stamina saw her not only cement herself in history, but also her story continues to inspire countless budding athletes that they can achieve their dreams.

Passionate about driving positive change, Chrissie’s talk goes beyond sport, asking individuals to challenge themselves and defy what they ever thought was possible.

Chrissie has an MA in International Development from the University of Manchester. Alongside her sporting achievements, Chrissie still finds the time to maintain links with several projects in Nepal from her time there.

In 2009 Chrissie’s achievements were recognised as she was awarded Sportswoman of the Year.
