Leading Ladies – Sharon Eckley

Throughout UK Coaching Week we have featured some of our fantastic female leaders because we feel these Leading Ladies deserve the spotlight and most importantly our thanks!

Our final featured Leading Lady is . . .

Sharon Eckley – She Runs: Cardiff

Coleen Manuel wrote to us to say “I have just seen your Leading Ladies feature and would like to make a nomination for Sharon Eckley from She Runs: Cardiff for the following reasons:

Sharon plays a huge part in supporting female runners as a Run Buddy with She Runs: Cardiff. She is a qualified Leader in Running fitness and is passionate about supporting women to enjoy running. When lockdown restrictions prevented us from holding our usual social runs, Sharon still wanted to provide this support so she has set up a virtual couch to 5k programme where she keeps in regular touch with runners and holds weekly Zoom group catch up sessions to swap tips, encourage each other and share any struggles. Sharon is a founding member of She Runs: Cardiff and a vital committee member who is always coming up with new ideas for promoting social running and general fitness.”

Amazing Sharon, the perfect end to our series! Thank you for all you do for the women of She Runs: Cardiff.

Thank you to Coleen for the nomination.
