With an impressive athletic career, including representing Great Britain and Northern Ireland in a world championship, Tina enjoyed success in the world of competitive running. However, it was during this time that she realized the profound impact her lifestyle had on the environment. She made a commitment to embrace sustainable living and reduce her carbon footprint, and recognizing the power of her platform as a renowned athlete and influencer, leveraged her position to advocate for climate change action.
She is implementing a sustainability plan for the World Road Running Championships in San Diego 2025; has worked with the United Nations on campaigns related to climate change and humanitarian affairs; and assisted the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the TCS New York City Marathon, TCS Toronto Waterfront Marathon, and the AJC Peachtree Road Race (amongst others) with their sustainability initiatives, both on the ground and behind the scenes.
On her podcast and social media, Tina starts conversations and shares resources on sustainability, climate change, and how individuals can make a positive difference in their own lives. Her book, Becoming a Sustainable Runner, co-written with Zoë Rom, merges runners’ passion for their sport with their concern for their health, their community, and the environment. Through her personal outreach and her service on the Board of Directors of Running USA, Tina brings awareness and attention to much-needed changes in the running industry, and provides innovative solutions.
As the first elite athlete to speak out publicly about having amenorrhea and as the creator of an online recovery resource, REDs: Realize. Reflect. Recover, Tina is in high demand for her insights into Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport.
