Vanessa Fursden

Originally from Northern Ireland, Vanessa has an MSc in Food Science & Nutrition and works full time in a senior food industry role. After doing her first half marathon for charity, she signed up for an Ironman six years ago with friends as a way to learn to swim and quickly progressed to representing GB at age group level at the long distance ETU & ITU championships, finishing 12th lady overall at Challenge Madrid. After several Ironmans, Vanessa’s focus moved to more endurance based events, including the Donegal 555km with wins in both gravel racing & ultra marathon. In Autumn 2021 she started racing on Zwift, competing in the Irish eRacing championship and finishing in third.
