Gemma Mellenbergh

Manager

Gemma is honoured and and excited to be stepping up as Managing Partner of Running Divas. 

Gemma started running 4 years ago when a friend suggested they tackle a 10km Fun Run together. Completely inexperienced Gemma jumped at the challenge with the hope it would also help her to achieve a better work/life balance. Gemma was approaching 40 and very aware that being the lifelong workaholic she is, she was not making any time for herself.  Being a very passionate and driven business owner for 12+ years. Crossing the finish line Gemma's passion for running was ignited. 

After a gruelling 15km fun run several months later, Gemma was quoted as saying she 'would never run that far again' but a short time later she found Running Divas. The motivation and inspiration from the Running Divas community was infectious and one year later Gemma successfully applied to be an Ambassador. 

Gemma's super power is sticking to a training plan and she loves the training journey as much as the run.  After completing many half marathons Gemma tackled her first marathon on the Gold Coast and the very next day registered for Melbourne Marathon. She loves everything about the Running Divas community and is thrilled to support, inspire and encourage women to change their lives one run at a time.
