Birkhampstead Society

Kerry’s story of her journey ‘so far’ was believable but, at the same time, remarkable. As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I can safely say that Kerry is an inspiration not only to those who are keen on ultra-running but also to many others from all walks of life.

An inspirational presentation given by Kerry to the society event last night. Kerry gave an insight into ultra running and her journey so far, it was thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you once again and we hope to see you here again


Prior Park 6th Form

I delivered a presentation to the school’s 6th form ahead of their A levels, focussing on harnessing the power of mindset and self belief. Back in the common room after the talk the head of Sixth form heard the following comments (and kindly passed them on!):

“It shows that with the right level of motivation anything is possible”

“That talk made me realize the importance of perseverance in every aspect of life”

“I was even inspired me to go running!”

“We were totally respect what Kerry has achieved, what was particularly impressive is her mental resilience. So much suffering for a great goal.”


Prior Park A level PE students

It was fantastic to have Kerry come in and speak to our Lower 6th PE students this week. They thoroughly enjoyed the session and found it very engaging. They not only enjoyed hearing about Kerry’s ultra running, and some of the events she has competed in, but they also found it useful to see how her training and diet relates to some of the areas of theory in the A Level PE course.

They were full of questions at the end of the session!


Natural Spa Factory

It was great to have Kerry come in and talk to our team. Sport and business are aligned and she certainly spurred everyone on to believe in themselves, be the best they can be & to never give up.

A fabulous motivator and great athlete.


Pangbourne College GCSE and A Level students

Inspiring, motivational and incredible are just some of the words that describes the engaging and interactive lecture our students received from Kerry Sutton. Her focus was on her experiences as an Ultra Marathon runner and the vigorous preparation (short & long) she goes through.

It was so relevant to any GCSE and A-Level course or anyone interested in sport. Our students gained so much from this lecture and many have taken up running as a result! Thank you so much for inspiring us all.
