ONE of Ellesmere Port’s brightest sporting stars has been nominated for a Your Champions award.
At just 25, sprinter Liz Tunna is the youngest female in the UK to complete more than 100 marathons.
Liz’s running achievements include the Chester, Malvern Hills Ultra, Grand Union Canal Ultra and the Brathay Windermere marathons – the latter of which she ran a record 10 times in just 10 days.
The former Whitby High School student, of Little Sutton, only started running five years ago, and in that time has raised thousands of pounds for charities, including The Brathay Trust and Claire House.
Liz was nominated in the Sporting Champion of the Year category by her grandmother Lilian Tunna, who said her granddaughter was ‘amazing in her running ability’.
Liz said: “I knew my nan was up to something but I didn’t think it would be this! It’s great news, really nice to hear.”
