Carole Gengler | Head of Communications & Marketing
I am excited to be part of the core Running Industry Alliance (RIA) team and to work with so many great and passionate people, assisting to make a difference in driving the Running Industry forward.
Prior to joining RIA I worked at Breathe Unity for over 14 years, looking after the PR team and working closely with many clients in the mass participation and running events market in the UK and abroad, event organisers and brands. I have worked with a large number and variety of businesses in the running industry over the years, many of who are now members of or joining RIA which is amazing.
At RIA I look after anything to do with Communications, Marketing and PR for Running Industry Alliance. I am the main contact for press and media as well as for RIA members wanting to showcase their business news and any member-to-member collaborations.
I have always loved sports and been running since my early teens – I am definitely one of these people who needs regular movement, fresh air and the outdoors!
I am originally from Luxembourg and after my studies and travels around the world I made the UK my home over 20 years ago. I love travelling, languages, reading, beaches, nature, sunshine, good food (cooking and eating!), running and keeping active. I am also a qualified Nutritional Therapist and I firmly believe that both running (or any other sport or form of movement that is enjoyed) and nutrition contribute hugely to our overall health and happiness.
