From judging to jogging: Archer prepares for marathon

An international archery judge is swapping her judging uniform for a running top and preparing to run the London Marathon.

Hannah Brown has made a significant contribution to archery but she has now set her sights on helping the next generation of young athletes by fundraising for a charity that supports the stars of the future.

Hannah, who was the first female Chair of Judges at an Olympic Games, in Tokyo, has achieved a huge amount in her time in archery.

Last year she was presented with a silver plaquette by World Archery in recognition of her input to the WA Field and 3D Committee where she was Chair for the last eight years, as well as her role as an International Judge.

She has also served as Technical Delegate for events such as the World Games in Birmingham, Alabama and, has led major changes to Field and 3D rules aimed at making competitions fairer, more exciting and broadcast friendly.

But her latest undertaking sees her preparing to run the London Marathon while raising funds for the Ron Pickering Fund which supports up and coming young athletes financially to help them reach their potential.

Hannah said: "Those that know me know that sport has always been part of my life and I have been supported by so many people and companies along the way it's maybe time to pay a little to the next generation.

"So one totally nuts idea of running London before I am 50 has come to fruition and I am trying to raise some funds for the next generation of Olympians and sport superstars."

She has set herself a goal of raising £1,400 and is nearly halfway there.

To help get her across the fundraising finish line, Hannah has gathered an impressive list of archery prizes for a raffle so ask her for a ticket when you see her out and about at events this year.
