While studying at University in Nottingham, Kemi decided to destress by going for a walk. Once she returned home, the thought occurred to her; how much quicker would it be to run? And so, she started running for the first time since childhood. In the space of just one year, she had joined every run club in London and completed her first marathon.
In 2018, Kemi was invited on a trip to Chamonix, where she fell deeply in love with trail running. Instantly hooked, she began to look into local trails, regularly making the short trip to Box Hill with friends. As with many people, the restrictions of the COVID enforced lockdown put paid to many of her goals.
Now, with the world opening up a little more, Kemi is most looking forward to teaming up with her run crews and getting back out on the trails she loves so dearly. This is Kemi’s Golden Summer.
