Tegan Pigram

27 years old from Derby, Western Australia Tegan has always been fit and focussed on being healthy. Before joining the Project, she ran several times a week, and believed that she had what it took to complete a marathon. Tegan sustained an injury prior to the 30km time trial, which is used as a final selection for the New York Marathon team, so was unable to travel to New York. Tegan continued training for a marathon once she recovered from her injury, and ran the 2012 Boston Marathon, alongside teammate Jamie Wunungmurra, in a time of 5 hours 17 minutes. Tegan is extremely goal oriented, and enjoys being faced with different challenges, which was a catalyst for her marathon training. Tegan works for Fortescue Metals in Perth, and has continued to build on her running following the Boston Marathon.
