iTAB Stars Logo

Every month iTAB puts an inspirational runner under the video spotlight with a jukebox of quickfire questions that only us runners will understand.

We love to spread the joy of running, not only finding out about their personal story, but also their amusing running quirks from go to pre-race snacks, to obsessive Strava habits.

Whatever your story we are always on the hunt for our next iTAB Star, so if you have a friend or family member you wish to nominate DM us at @HeyiTAB on Instagram or Facebook.

Sarah

Nominated and inspired by fellow iTAB Star Bryony Seabrook, Sarah began running for the charity Tommy’s, in memory of Bryony’s stillborn son Dylan. An epiphany moment sparked a transformational journey of weight loss and running that has seen her run two London Landmark Half Marathons.

After struggling through lockdown, Vegan Runner Jackie has more ultras in her sights!

Jackie

iTAB Star Jackie is a loud and proud Vegan Runner who loves her off road ultras and her local running club Southport Strollers.

When lockdown hit she struggled being cooped up and unable to run with her friends or running club. But whilst Covid may have interrupted her event running, it gave her valuable time to improve her fitness on the roads. Two years on and fitter than ever, she can’t wait to get back on the trail.

Ivan

iTAB Star Ivan Jia took up running to help lose weight, destress and kick start a new chapter in his life after moving from China to Melbourne, Australia as part of his studies.

He had already clocked up a personal landmark, running 32k around the city linkway in Beijing, but his greatest achievement was completing his first ever event, the Sydney Half Marathon.

Ivan harnessed the power of the running to kickstart a new life in Australia.

Inspirational Bryony has channeled her grief into a running superpower!

Bryony

Nine years ago Bryony suffered one of the most difficult tragedies, their son Dylan arrived stillborn at just 27 weeks pregnant, and later that year they suffered further heartache after a miscarriage. Bryony turned to running to help her grieving, and she has since raised over £46,000 for charity Tommy’s, and in 2015 welcomed their ‘rainbow’ baby Jenson into the world.

Bryony loves nothing more than getting out running and connecting with the great outdoors. But beware, she’s strictly a silent runner and if it’s raining outdoors she isn’t going anywhere.

Tanya

About four years ago Tanya suffered a series of epileptic seizures and ended up in intensive care in a coma. She had to learn to walk again, and then went one step further by starting running and setting a personal target of completing the London Landmarks Half Marathon.

Tanya is a Strava obsessive, if it isn’t on Strava it never happened, and she recoils in horror at the thought of ending a run without hitting a round number.
