British Veteran Conquers Ultra-marathon Across Tanzania to Support Veterans


Tricia Sinclair, a British veteran, recently completed the grueling Ultra X Tanzania ultra-marathon to raise funds for improving the mental wellbeing of her fellow veterans. The five-day running challenge covered a distance of 250km, including parts of Mount Kilimanjaro. Sinclair’s determination and commitment to the cause propelled her to complete the entire race.

Sinclair’s remarkable achievement came as a surprise, considering her limited experience in long-distance running. With no prior experience of running more than a marathon, she defied expectations by securing the 10th position among female participants, completing the race in 37.01 hours. Sinclair served in the army for 14 years, an experience she cherishes and remains grateful for.

Supporting Veterans’ Mental Wellbeing

Currently working as the director of fitness for the charity REORG, Sinclair aims to raise £30,000 to benefit veterans, military personnel, and emergency services members. The funds will support their participation in a 60-day fitness program that utilizes cross-fit training to enhance physical health and overall wellbeing. The transition from military service to civilian life can be daunting, but Sinclair’s personal journey has been made easier through the support and employment opportunities offered by REORG.

Sinclair highlights the strong sense of community that emerged during the ultra-marathon. On the challenging second day of the race, fellow runners faced with steep inclines. The kindness of a fellow participant, who provided Sinclair with a pole to aid her running, exemplified the camaraderie among the runners. Additionally, the participants’ gesture of singing “happy birthday” to Sinclair added to animating spirit of the event.

Inspiring Others and Looking Ahead

Sinclair’s ultra-marathon journey was a life-changing experience that left her feeling immensely proud. Her accomplishment has inspired her father to take on a half marathon, emphasizing the importance of pushing oneself beyond comfort zones. With her fundraising target still to be met, Sinclair plans to undertake future challenges. She has been invited to the Ultra X championships in June of next year and is also considering participating in an Ironman event. Her inspiring feat continues to make a positive impact on the lives of her fellow veterans.
