Fiona Oakes is a lifelong vegan, sportsperson, fire fighter and animal welfare/rights campaigner and carer.  Fiona currently combines caring for over 400 rescued animals at her Sanctuary in Essex www.towerhillstables.com with the duties of a retained Fire-fighter and the commitments of an elite Marathon runner.


In 2013 Fiona broke three marathon World Records and is now the fastest woman ever to run a marathon on each of the seven continents. Fiona holds the course record at both the North Pole Marathon and the Antarctic Ice Marathon and has truly taken the Vegan cause from Pole to Pole!
An honorary patron of the Vegan society and a patron of the Captive Animal Protection Society Fiona launched the Fiona Oakes Foundation in 2013. Fiona’s Sanctuary deals with the symptoms of animal abuse whilst her Foundation (www.fionaoakesfoundation.co.uk) tackles the cause by showing that the Vegan diet is not prohibitive to performance in extreme endurance events.
