Dora is the community lead at @ultrablackrunning and is the founder of ‘Last Pick Athletics Club’, an initiative that invites all ages and all abilities to workout together.

Ultra Black Running was founded at the end of June 2020 because Dora felt that there is a lack of representation in the running world, and especially in the trail/ultra/mountain running scene. She wants women and gender non-conforming individuals to see themselves when they run in the trails or attend races in the future. To find out more and get in touch with Dora you can follow her at @doradontexplore on Instagram.
