Hanny Allston is Tasmanian born and has achieved at the elite level in a range of running sports including orienteering, marathon, mountain, road and distance track running. Hanny is the only athlete outside of Europe to have won a World Orienteering Title, completing a double Junior World Championship and Senior World Championship in the same year.
Hanny is the founder of Find Your Feet, a retail & tourism enterprise based in Hobart. She has tertiary qualifications in Medical Science, Education, Life Coaching, Business and Sports Coaching. Hanny is fascinated by the science behind performance and how to marry this with the busyness of modern lifestyles. She has created her own theories on coaching adults, especially those aspiring to endurance & ultra-endurance running events. A lot of her experience has also stemmed from her experience as an elite athlete and through employment at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra during the pre-London Olympic campaign.
Today, Hanny is the co-owner of Find Your Feet, providing a range of services to help all Australians to #be wilder and to find their feet. Her business partner is her husband, Graham Hammond. Hanny is also a member of the Tasmanian National Parks & Wildlife Advisory Council, providing consultancy on business, tourism & recreation. Her role is to represent the Tasmanian public on matters of significance to Tasmania's National Parks. In March 2015 she was one of four guest speakers at the Wilderness World Heritage Forum in Hobart. She has aspirations to become more active as an advocate for health, wilderness & cultural preservation, especially in her home state of Tasmania.
Some of Hanny’s most notable sporting achievements included: second in the Ultra Trail Australian 100km ('17); winner of the Ultra Trail Australia 50km (’16); a new women’s record for the 6 Foot Track Marathon (’15); a podium finish at the World Orienteering Championships in Scotland (’15); Oceania Skyrunning Champion (’15); and two top 10 finishes on the World Skyrunning Series in the Italian Dolomites & Hong Kong (’15). She has also run the entire distance of Tasmania's remote South Coast Track (93km, 12hrs) and is the record holder of Tasmania's Overland Track (82km, 8hrs15mins)
In 2015, Hanny also won the Telstra Young Business Award for Tasmania and was a finalist in the national business awards.
