About our founder
Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as an endurance runner apart from the rest. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents and the North Pole in both cumulative and elapsed time.
She has competed internationally in more than 50 marathons and set 5 marathon course records around the globe, including The Antarctic Ice Marathon. In 2015 Fiona ran 6 official marathons in 6 days on 6 continents.
Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run, after undergoing 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed.
With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals and veganism around the world.
A new ground-breaking documentary, Running For Good which chronicles Fiona's running career and her tremendous work at Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary, will be released this year. Watch the trailer here.
