 🇬🇧 UK • Running

Runner. Author. Speaker. Extraordinary Chaser.

"I'm here to be my best, do my best, have a blast and bring as many people as I can along for the ride. I’m Chasing Extraordinary!"

For as long as Nikki can remember, she has been passionate about moving, training, nurturing, and loving her own body and mind. Since the age of 19, she has dedicated herself to encouraging, inspiring, and motivating others to do the same.

These days, Nikki identifies as an adventure runner at heart, although she has worn many hats over the years. Her goals are straightforward: to write, speak, run, and share as much knowledge, experience, adventure, and love as she possibly can. She lives her life through three guiding principles: LOVE, FUN, and ADVENTURE.

JOGLE 3 Peak Run

UK 🇬🇧
Jul. 2024 - ongoing
Running will run from John O’Groats to Land’s End via the 3 peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) in under 30 days = JOGLE 3 PEAKS Adventure.


Nikki’s challenge will be raising money for Keep Me Breathing, to support our Breathing Pacemaker Project, helping us to take our work to the next stage which is to go into product testing.  We have families around the world counting on us to bring this new solution to patients with CCHS, replacing the need for a ventilator and transforming lives.


You could say both Nikki and Keep Me Breathing are in a race!  Our race is to raise sufficient funds as quickly as we can so we can complete our 5-year product-to-patient plan, designed by Cambridge University. This means we will reach our target of bringing this technical innovation to families within 5 years.
