Sarah is from Los Angeles and an alumni of UCLA, where she was a member of the famous UCLA swim team. Since her swimming career ended, she became addicted to running, especially the longer distances. The Marine Corp Marathon will be her 7th marathon.

She is married to Declan de Val and has two children. She is a keen supporter of the work of Go Commando and when she saw that the United States Marine Corps Marathon was being run on 28 October this year, the Royal Marines 354th Anniversary, she was determined to run the Marathon for Go Commando. Sarah said “I am a strong believer in the importance of first class early learning for our children and the children of military families are often disadvantaged by frequent moves. I am glad to be supporting Go Commando in their work in this area, particularly in view of the close relationship between the US Marine Corps and the Royal Marines”
