Our very own CEO Edwina Brocklesby announces autobiography release!

We are extremely excited and proud to announce our CEO Eddie has written an autobiography!


“At the age of 50, Eddie Brocklesby decided to run her first half marathon. Until that point, she’d done little running, and her exercise regime consisted of little more than chauffeuring her children to their own sports clubs. In common with so many people, any interest she’d shown in sport in her childhood had diminished as her adult life progressed, with spare time becoming ever more limited in the face of work and family commitments.

But the half marathon was the first of what was to become a hugely impressive trajectory of sporting accolades and successes. After that event, and following the loss of her husband of thirty years to cancer, she completed a marathon. Now 75 years old, the past twenty years has seen Eddie take part in marathons, triathlons and Ironman races across the globe and she has accrued many medals and awards.

In¬†Irongran, Eddie looks back on her life and explains just how she’s managed to develop the energy to match the enthusiasm she’s always had for an active lifestyle. She shares the difficulties she’s experienced in her sporting endeavours, and explains how she’s managed to overcome them. Eddie is passionate about the health and wellbeing of our ageing population and provides up to date research about why keeping active in later years is so important, along with guidance about how to remain full of life in your later years.”

Find out exactly what inspired Eddie and what continues to keep her active! Official release 5th April! Pre-order your copy now on Amazon and Waterstones:

    Just up to Chapter 9 of Edwina Brocklesby’s book ‘ Irongran’ – a good read because I am also a marathon runner ( since 1981) ; 159 to date ; with my 160th next month. Also , I competed in Olympic distance triathlons for 12 years (from 1985 to 1997) . I could never match Edwina’s marvellous achievements . and yes I agree some form of regular exercise certainly helps maintaining good health. I am 79. If it is possible, please send her my best wishes.
