Claire Spurway

Meet Claire Spurway our founder and World Champion athlete.

Born in Stafford in the Midlands, Claire started competing in athletics at the age of twelve -joining a local athletics club, Cannock and Stafford AC. A successful junior athletics career followed but was marred by various injuries, which made it hard for her to compete at a top level.


Claire went on to study PE and Sport Science at Loughborough University, representing the World famous sports university in many athletics events. In 2007, she moved to London to join an elite training squad, but a back injury prevented further progress, returning to Masters athletics in 2015.


She now concentrates on coaching and competing in Masters events - at which she has won international gold medals. She trains with top Olympic coach, Tom McNab,and is currently British, European and World Masters Indoor 60m Champion, 2019 and Britain’s number one Masters W40 60m sprinter.


Claire also owns Claire Spurway Fitness, a World Class athletics personal training company.,
