Case Study - Tracy Nicholson – TGC RUN

Case Study - Tracy Nicholson – TGC RUN

Tracy is an enthusiastic member of the Active Newcastle running groups.  She regularly takes part in the This Girl Can Civic Centre running group which meets on a Monday Evening and participates in the This Girl Can Park run group most weekends.  She is a great member of the Active Newcastle community and has tried other sessions that we offer also including climbing, and basketball

Tracy was spurred on to become active when she lost her grandfather in 2010 and then her father in 2014.  This pushed her to challenge herself and run 5k which she had not before.  She started training and caught the ‘running bug’

The Active Newcastle running group has helped her along this journey and has built her confidence in running.  Tracy has tried things she would have never done before through the opportunities Active Newcastle provide 

Tracy managed to complete her first 10k race and Great North Run in 2015 on the back of her training

Tracy has been an inspiration to others and has qualified with a Level 2 gym instructor qualification and level 3 exercise referral qualification; she regularly gives advice to other on her Facebook page
