Clare Walkeden

Clare Walkeden is an ultra cyclist and endurance athlete, or as she likes to put it ‘just a woman with a bike (or three…)’.After coming to sport later in life and trying some running before moving to triathlon and quite quickly onto Ironman distance, she realised was best at the longer stuff. First female home at the Brutal Triathlon she also realised she liked the events that were a bit different, a puzzle and put you ‘out there’.Clare mainly takes part now in self supported ultra cycling events, on and off road, and has completed a fair few of the biggest on the calendar, including the London Edinburgh London and (LEL) and Highland Trail 550 (HT550) in 2023. This year sees her heading to the inaugural  Alps Divide at a 1000km with 32000m ascent, on and off road. A daily advocate in life and business for being outside and in nature as a part of keeping us feeling both physically and psychologically well. Clare brings the outdoors into her consultancy business and can often be found taking business groups and leaders for walks, encouraging people away from their desks for some fresh air and fresh thinking.
