Angela’s full entry on the University of Edinburgh Hall of Fame website

Angela Mudge, the National Lead for Hill and Mountain Running for scottishathletics, has been inducted into the University of Edinburgh’s Sports Hall of Fame.

Angela completed a Chemistry PhD at the University in 2000, and has been inducted into the Hall of Fame in recognition of her achievements as a Scottish, British and World Champion in hill and trail running.

Despite coming late to mountain racing, and a physical disability in childhood, she rapidly excelled, winning multiple titles in domestic and international competition, as well as breaking countless course records.

Angela is still an active hill runner, alongside her work for scottishathletics to help develop and support the next generations in the sport.

She was inducted on 2 June at the University’s Blues and Colours Awards Dinner, alongside Olympic medallist hockey player Sarah Robertson and pioneering rugby referee Hollie Davidson.

It brings to 44 the number of athletes in the Hall of Fame, among them Olympian hurdler Eilidh Doyle, who was induced in 2014.

The University’s Director of Sport Jim Aitken MBE, said:  ‘It’s an honour to welcome these three inspiring women into our Sports Hall of Fame. Each have contributed immeasurably in their chosen sport and demonstrate the University’s place as a leading destination for gifted students wanting to pursue their academic and sporting ambitions.’

All at scottishathletics would also like to add our congratulations to Angela on this well-earned accolade.
