Jessika Ehlers

About me:

I was born in 1996 in Kiel. As a child sports activities didn’t interest me, yet at the age of 15 I discovered my passion for running and a talent for long distances. What I especially love is the many-sidedness of running: You can burn of lots of energy, can relax and clear your mind of the daily trash. You can compete with other athletes, but you can also run with your friends while at the same time motivating each other. Running requires hardly any equipment and it can virtually be practiced wherever you like.
In the past years I took part in numerous competitions from 1000 m track racing to the 51 km ultramarathon. My best time for the 10 km distance is 34:50 min, 1:16 hrs for 21,1 km and 2:42 hrs for the marathon distance.

Highlights:

1st place in the AKU20 Hamburg Marathon, fastest German woman in the 2018 Hamburg marathon, 1st place in the Roth Women’s Relay 2018, my calling to join the Schleswig-Holstein cadres, several state championships in 2018 and 2019.

Why I am a 7CRun Ambassador:

I like the idea by running to support my own health and fitness and at the same time further a good purpose. That we ourselves can choose which organization to support will certainly be an additional motivational push for us.
