Pushing Your Limits & the Kindness of Strangers - Carla Molinaro, LEJOG World Record Holder

Play
Read more

Carla Molinaro is an elite runner, running coach and adventurer who seeks events that are slightly harder than the average. She loves pushing her body to the limits by running a long way, up mountains and around islands - she has represented GB at the 100 km World Championships and currently competes for Team Massmart, an elite women's running team based in South Africa. 

At the end of July 2020, Carla set a new Women's World Record running from Lands End to John O'Groats (LEJOG). Now, admittedly this is not an "everyday adventure" by most people's standards - not even Carla herself! However, what became clear from reading Carla's interviews after the race, was that the range of emotions she experienced during the event and her motivations for taking up the challenge, were very relatable to anyone who has ever decided to take on their own adventure. 

In this conversation, Carla talks about what inspired her to take on such an immense challenge - especially during lockdown - what kept her going when times were tough and how the support she received along the way was unlike anything she had previously experienced in her running career.

Carla Molinaro - Breaking the women's record for Land's End to John O'Groats, running the length of Britain in just 12 days, 30 minutes and 14 seconds!

Carla in her own words:   I am an elite ultra runner, running coach and adventurer who seeks out events that are slightly harder than the average. I love pushing my body to the limits by running a long way, up mountains, around islands and recently running the length of Great Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats and setting a new ladies World Record along the way. It’s safe to say that I have caught the ‘micro-adventure’ and exploration bug.   I have represented Great Britain at the 100km World Championships and I currently compete for Team Massmart, an elite woman’s running team based in South Africa.    With my experience in sport from grass roots to elite level, my degree in Science in Health, Exercise and Sport, UK Athletics Coaching, Personal Training and Sports Massage qualifications I love to work with aspiring runners and athletes to get the best out of themselves and push their boundaries!   I am happiest when on the trails carrying out my own adventure be that running around Mont Blanc or running the length of Great Britain. There is something magical about planning your own journey and going on an adventure.   During this episode Carla shares more about her passion for running, and goes into detail about the training, planning and preparation for her most recent challenge running the length of Great Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats which she did in a record breaking time of 12 days, 30 mins and 14 seconds.   New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday and Thursday at 7am UK time!

Carla Molinaro is an elite ultrarunner and coach with a glowing CV.  After the cancellation of all her races this year, Carla began training for a world record attempt under lockdown in South Africa, where she could only run up and down a 100-metre driveway.

Nevertheless, on 28th July she set a new women's world record having run the 874-mile/1400km length of Great Britain in 12 days and 30 minutes.

We chat to her about preparing for a world record under lockdown restrictions, and about the grueling 12 days of hard running it took to reach her goal.
