The Team Captains are back!

At RunFestRun, we want you to run for yourself, run together and run as a team. Whether a multi-marathon runner, middle distance pacer, a short distance shuffler or an outright amateur runner, our team captains of Paula Radcliffe, Steve Cram, Colin Jackson and Natasha Evans have you covered.

Colin Jackson's Team Dragonfly were victorious in 2019... but who will sprint to glory in 2020?!

Colin Jackson

Great Britain’s Legendary Hurdler, Multiple Gold Medallist, World Record Holder & Broadcaster. Without doubt one of the finest and most loved athletes Great Britain has ever produced. Colin continues to be a fixture on our TV screens, long after retiring from athletics after numerous records and multiple world titles. Colin has seamlessly made the transition into broadcasting, most notably as an integral part of BBC Athletics, covering every major event since the Athens Olympics in 2004.

Paula Radcliffe

Paula is a three-time winner of the London Marathon (2002, 2003, 2005), three-time New York Marathon champion (2004, 2007, 2008), and 2002 Chicago Marathon winner. She was the fastest female marathoner of all time, holding the Women’s World Marathon Record from 2003 until 2019. Since retiring from competitive marathon racing Paula now commentates on athletics for the BBC.

Steve Cram

In a career spanning over three decades, Steve Cram’s many achievements include World, European and multiple Commonwealth Games titles over 1500m and 800m. In 1985, Steve broke 3 world records in the 1500m, 2000m and Mile, all within 19 days; the latter lasting almost nine years. Following retirement on the track he became the voice of athletics on the BBC following the retirement of David Coleman in 2000. 

Natasha Evans

The neck that turns the head of the man behind the mic of The Virgin Radio Breakfast Show.  Full time supermum and head of mission control that is Evans Towers.

Noah (Age 10, Number 1 Son) says; "mum is one of those really annoying people who is good at any sport she decides to have a bash at. The opposite of dad. She's also extremely competitive. So watch out Crammy, Colin and Paula!" 

Eli (Age 6, Number 2 Son) says; "yeh!"

Ping & Pong (Natasha's 6 month old twins) were unavailable for comment.
