OV Wright Wows

OV and pro runner, Alice Wright (S 06-13), has this week triumphed in her first ever marathon. Taking to the roads in Houston for the Chevron Houston Marathon, Alice achieved a staggering time of 2:29:08, placing her second overall.

Alice’s running career began at School, where she was a member of both the Athletics Team and the Cross Country squad, completing the triple crown by being a member of the Swimming Team. After King’s, Alice took up a running sports scholarship at the University of New Mexico.

More recently, due to injuries, illness and the global pandemic, Alice has been unable to race for two years, so turning up in Houston with such an incredible time and position speaks volumes to her tenacity and training.

Many congratulations, Alice!
