We might as well have spoken to Superwoman for today’s episode, because our special guest, Fiona Oakes, is one extraordinary human being! 

Vegan for over 40 years, Fiona is an endurance runner and holds 3 marathon world records.

She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents and the north pole in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona has competed internationally in more than 50 marathons and set 5 marathon course records around the globe, including The Antarctic Ice Marathon. In 2015 Fiona ran 6 official marathons in 6 days on 6 continents. 

In April 2017, Fiona ran what’s known as the “toughest footrace on earth” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250 km (156 miles) race through the Sahara Desert.

On top of all this, she almost single-handedly runs the Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary where she cares for almost 500 animals!! 

In fact, that’s the main point of her running, and everything she does … it’s for the animals. 

She really is a super – woman who smashes through the stereotype of vegans being weak, and her passion for helping animals is incredibly inspiring.
