Grace in her own words:

 

“I’m driven by the need to inspire other people of colour on to the trails.

 

I want to increase diversity and participation in endurance running. 

 

I’m also tired of being the only Black person at endurance events and feeling like I don’t belong. 

 

I’ve run 70+ marathons including ultras, and I’m still going.”
