Claire Lomas | Speaker Biography

Claire Lomas is an English Paralympic athlete and motivational speaker, known for her success in wheelchair racing events. Born on January 15, 1986, she has achieved significant milestones in her career.

Lomas began competing in wheelchair racing at 17, inspired by Tanni Grey-Thompson's gold medal win at the Sydney Olympics. In 2012, she finished second in the London Marathon, just two years after starting competitive running. The following year, she became the first woman to complete the marathon in a powered chair.

In 2014, Lomas set out to break the world record for the fastest time to push a manual wheelchair across the United Kingdom, covering over 200 miles in 14 days. This feat earned her a place in the Guinness World Records. The following year, she completed the London Marathon in a record-breaking 24 hours, 29 minutes, and 17 seconds.

Lomas has also been involved in various charity initiatives, raising £1 million for Spinal Research through her marathon challenge in 2014. She has also worked with the NHS to promote health and fitness among young people.

Despite her numerous achievements, Lomas remains humble about her accomplishments. "I don't think I'm superhuman," she said in an interview. "I've got a disability but it doesn't define me". Her story serves as an inspiration to many, demonstrating that determination and resilience can overcome even the most challenging circumstances.
