Elsey Davis

Ultra runner

Elsey, comes from Chester in the UK, is one of the UK’s finest marathon runners. She works as a doctor, and temporarily put a pause on running activities due to COVID as she supported on the frontline of the pandemic. This makes her remarkable race times even more impressive given the time away from running and training.
