About Heather Hawkins

Ten years ago, then 41-year-old Heather Hawkins received a devastating diagnosis: stage one ovarian cancer, in the form of a tumour of 18cm. Following the diagnosis, the office and accounts manager and (non-running) mother of two made a decision to be damned if she let cancer define her. With that, Heather catapulted herself into living a more adventurous, ambitious life – which, in the 10 years since, has seen her run 17 marathons and three ultramarathons in some of the toughest terrain in the world, the culmination of which was the completion of the gruelling World Marathon Challenge (seven marathons in seven days on seven continents).
