Paula Radcliffe

Fee Band

Amongst the greatest distance runners of her generation, Paula’s perseverance has been rewarded with 5,000m Commonwealth, 10,000m European and world cross country titles – as well as the marathon world record. She has overcome injury, asthma and others’ doubts, and been crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year.


Paula Radcliffe is one of Great Britain’s most successful and recognisable athletes. She holds the world record for the 10km, 20km and 30km road races, and has twice won the World Cross-Country Championships. Her greatest track successwas European 10,000m gold in Munich.

Paula succeeded Sally Gunnell as women's captain of the British athletics team at the European Cup Final in St.Petersburg, marking the occasion by winning the 5000m. She then moved up to the marathon, a decision that immediately paid off with victory in London and a new world record. She soon broke her own record by a minute and a half, with a time of 2:17:18 in Chicago. Paula can now claim to be the best female distance runner of all time.

After delays, injuries and setbacks, and the birth of two children, Paula was unable to compete at London 2012 and ran her last London Marathon in 2015.
