Part of her involvement as the main Virgin Sport host included interviewing Sir Richard Branson, Mary Wittenberg, Poppy Charlie Dark and Chevy from the recent documentary ‘Mind Over Marathon’.

Her role was quite intense, keeping the day running smoothly from the audience’s perspective and interviewing runners before, during and after the event.

Over 10,000 people ran the 13-mile route around the Olympic Park in east London.

The fitness festival was very much a family affair hosting multiple sporting activities, including a one-mile race for local primary school children.

Speaking at the event, Sir Richard said: “I think the obesity crisis in the UK is turning somewhat and I think it’s events like this that contribute to it getting better”.
