Lea Whitehead

Lea began running in 2017 and joined Medway Fit in May of the same year after regularly seeing the familiar orange and black kit of Mfit runners on St Mary's Island on a Tuesday night. Lea quickly become a regular at club sessions and met personal running goals with the support of the club. Since joining the club Lea has become a passionate trail runner and has completed several trail adventures with Richard, Zoe and her husband Lee, with the 2022 calendar looking just as exciting as this year's has been. Lea can often be seen having a relaxed social run on a Saturday morning at Great lines parkrun, sometimes with her little Jack Russell, Gizzy, running alongside Zoe and Stella. Lea is a bubbly and enthusiastic personality and those that run with her regularly know she has a rather unique running song!! This year Lea has been able to give back to the club by becoming a LiRF.
