Julie Creffield

Too Fat to Run is the plus size fitness movement led by serial entrepreneur, community engagement expert and five-time marathon runner Julie Creffield that helps overweight and inactive women to thrive and survive in the sport of running through its innovative online and in-person fitness and mindset programmes.

It is estimated that over the past decade Too Fat to Run has helped more than 50,000 women to take up the sport through its important work, which is not only about fitness but about confidence and empowerment. In her TEDx talk she recorded in 2018, called “Living a Bigger Life”, Julie spoke about the overwhelming fear of judgement that many plus size women feel stops them from living a fulfilled life.

“Innovation is about looking at a problem with fresh eyes and finding creative ways to tackle it. ”
