Plant-Based Athlete Lisa Gawthorne is to Run For England
Gawthorne is a plant-based athlete and co-founder of the vegan brand distributor, Bravura Foods.
Now, for the second time this year, she has been called up to run for her age group in the British & Irish Masters Cross Country International.
The race will take place on Saturday 16th November at Aintree Racecourse and will see Lisa, along with the other British and Irish Master’s runners, run 6km on a cross country course.
Lisa runs with the group Vegan Runners – the fastest growing and biggest running club in the UK.
Gawthorne commented: “I am naturally over the moon, I’ve worked really hard this year to get my running into a solid place which has been quite tough to do in between prepping and competing at the European and World Sprint duathlon champs in Spain and Romania. I am made up to be part of the team and whilst it’s my second call up it actually marks my first cross country call up. I am looking forward to the race and the fact that its local is also a big plus!”
