Project Marathon Girl

aka Jordan Foster


Jordan Foster, is a 28 year old runner from London in the UK, who is just working hard everyday to achieve her goals.

Jordan says, "I still cant believe how much running has changed my life. When I lined up for my first half marathon in 2014 I never imagined the places running would take me, or the things I would have achieved in the years that followed. This year has seen me leave the safety of road marathons behind and I have been incredibly lucky to take part in some amazing ultras around the UK & the world, with most recently completing my first 5 day, 250km ultra marathon in the Wadi Rum desert with Ultra X, and even managing to finish 1st female! I am so excited to take on yet another new challenge next year with Africa Marathons and Comrades Marathon... I want that silver medal!"

Running is what motivates her every single day. It keeps her sane, it keeps her healthy & it has given her so much more than a few medals. She always mentions that she honestly could not imagine her life without it, and she hopes she never has to experience a life without it.

Jordan inspires other runners by sharing her knowledge and infectious personality with other runners through her online coaching business - PMGCoaching. Catch her blog for more info.

Jordan inspires us as a running organisation and its for this reason that a partnership was born. With Jordan's help we would like to encourage runners from across the globe to join us on the quest of running 6 marathons across Africa.

The Running Dan

aka Danny O'Reilly


Danny O’Reilly, is a 35 year old runner from London, trying to juggle a 9-5 in marketing with achieving his running goals.

Danny says, “My running journey began when I moved to London. The daily commute on the tube was slowly wearing me down - I would arrive to work stressed, and oftentimes late. Whether it be the sheer volume of people, the noise, the pushing or a combination of them all, I would walk into the office full of angst, hold on to it throughout the day, before it was time to do it all again on the way home. One day I decided run commute instead.”

“At this stage of my life 5 stone heavier and incredibly unfit. Those early runs were more walking than running, but it changed my life and I haven’t used the tube since.”

Fast-forward 6 years and Danny has completed 26 marathons all over the world, with a PB of 2:47, as well as dabbling in the ultra scene.

“Comrades Marathon has always been my bucket list race and will be my biggest challenge to date. There’s so many elements that made me want to take on Comrades, the different medals, the stadium finish, the history, the tough cut-offs and the support...and I want that silver medal”

Running is Danny’s passion and he’s immensely grateful for how it’s changed his life, the people he’s met and the places he's seen. “Running is the greatest gift anyone has ever shared with me and I hope to share that gift with as many people as possible.”

Danny also inspires us as a running organisation and its for this reason that a partnership was born. With Danny's help we would like to encourage runners from across the globe to join us on the quest of running 6 marathons across Africa.
