About Me

Char’s Footsteps

Hi, I’m Char! A thirty-something from London looking to document my two biggest passions – running and travelling. I hope to provide helpful tips and guides to anyone looking to embark on a new adventure; be it a trip overseas, or a marathon run! Currently living and working in Melbourne and will document my experience of relocating overseas.


My running journey properly started when I signed up to the 2015 London Marathon. I wanted a new challenge, fundraise for an important charity and have an outlet from university that wasn’t alcohol fuelled. After running the marathon, I was hooked and have since run 7 marathons around the world. 

My running goals are to complete the 6 World Major Marathons (just Tokyo and Boston left!), qualify for Boston (will take a lifetime at this rate), run an ultra-marathon and – my ultimate goal – finish a full Ironman triathlon. My next big race will be the 2024 Sydney Marathon in September.

Never Ending Footsteps


From city breaks between the 9-5, solo backing trips and living abroad, I am passionate about exploring new destinations, new cultures and learning about new ways of life. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to over 50 countries, with most of those solo backpacking. Here you’ll find all my tips, guides and experiences from places I’ve visited.
