Byrne ran 17 miles of the Dublin Marathon in 2010 to get a feel for the event.

She recently warmed up for London by winning the Dublin Mini Marathon – a young, emerging athlete with great prospects for the future.

Byrne has overcome lengthy illness to achieve her Olympic dream. Running internationally since she was 15, she is a graduate of DCU.
