Charlie Denman, who does RaceRunning with Chamwell Centre, training at the Blackbridge Jubilee Athletics Track, Podsmead, with RaceRunning Dragons (Gloucester) has had another fantastic year.

  • July 2018:   Competing in Yate, Charlie shaved a massive 8 seconds off her previous 400m personal best – perfect preparation for her forthcoming competition at the Cerebral Palsy World Games in Barcelona.
  • August 2018:  Charlie travelled to Barcelona, for the CP World Games, representing England in the RaceRunning.  Against stiff international competition, she returned home to Gloucestershire as a World Champion RaceRunner – with a haul of 2 bronze medals, 1 silver and 1 gold medal.  Such a fantastic achievement – all the hard work and training paying off.
  • September 2018:  Charlie took part in the National Cerebral Palsy Sport Series at Doncaster – this time achieving 4 gold medals!
  • November 2018:  Just when we thought Charlie had achieved all her goals this year, she was nominated as Disability Sports Performer of the Year at the Gloucestershire Sports Awards – and won!  The evening  ended with a presentation for Gloucestershire Sports Personality of Year……Charlie came away with this award too!   What an inspirational young lady!

Charlie’s mum, Amy commented:  “Thank you so much Chamwell Centre for all your support – she wouldn’t be competing without all your help, support and knowledge – not mention the loan of the RaceRunning bike!  You have literally changed Charlie’s life.  To all who have supported Charlie, THANK YOU – especially her trainer Bob Purcell. ”    

Congratulations to Charlie and all her family – what an inspirational year for you all!
