Ex-Marine and fastest amputee 10k runner in the world will be talking about his life in the Marines, his determination and motivation to keep pushing himself to be the best he can be and the story behind the title of his autobiography ‘You’ll Never Walk’ – which he will be signing copies of at the Expo.
Friday 24th: 2pm and 6pm
Saturday 25th: 12pm and 2.45pm

Becca Burns – @thisbunnyruns

Becca started running in 2016 as a way to dealing with personal challenges she was facing and soon discovered the positive physical and mental benefits running gave her. From running her first half marathon in June 2017 she has now completed her first marathon, in the heat of London this year,  and is now chasing the sub 4-hour dream – which we hopes she gets at the Rock n Roll Liverpool Marathon May 2019.
Saturday 25th: 2.15pm

Focused Performance – focusedperformance

Geoff is a qualified running coach with UK Athletics whose passion is all about helping other runners achieve their running goals, no matter what they are, while staying injury-free.

Friday 24th: 5pm
Saturday 25th: 12.30pm and 4pm

Ian Jones – @ianjonesrunsocr

Ian likes a challenge and last year qualified for the World’s Toughest Mudder in Las Vegas, where he came in the top 100 by running 76 miles (only 60 miles after penalties) in 24 hours. Ian will be talking about what drives him to continue pushing himself with 4am starts and gruelling work-outs that most of us would run a mile from! Ian will be running the Rock n Roll Liverpool Marathon May 2019.
Friday 24th: 4pm
Saturday 25th: 1.15pm

Kelly Ruck – @kellogs_ontherun

After having her fourth child three years, Kelly turned to running as a way to get fit and it wasn’t long before Kelly realised that not only did running give her some ‘me time’ but it would give her some amazing experiences and friendships along the way. She also discovered she had an apt for running long distances and in June this year completed her first ultra, completing the Race to the Tower double marathon non-stop!
Join Kelly at the Rock n Roll Liverpool Marathon May 2019.
Saturday 25th: 1.45pm
