We’re excited to announce that new ambassador Blake Vivian joins Team Sunwise.
Blake has been running for the last 20 years starting after wanting to become a firefighter. Blake found he was a natural runner, with limited training he was achieving top 5 results in cross country races. At 18 Blake entered his first marathon which sparked his love for running and exercise. He has had to maintain a high level of fitness after serving as a firefighter for 9 years, now Blake mainly competes in 10k races and half marathons but has also raced marathons and shorter distances.
Blake is one of the top ranking distance runners in Herts and his top achievements include earning elite/professional ranking in 2008 and representing Great Britain in International Masters Athletics in 2015.

Blake aims to continue representing GB at athletics and also becoming one of the top fastest male athletes for his age group in the UK. 2017 is already set to be a busy season, here’s a handful of events and competitions Blake has planned:
