Meet the 2017 Team UC in the Westminster 10K


Name: Kieran Hashmi

Campus: UC Los Angeles, Class of 2015 (Exchange student)

Hometown: London, England

Kieran has earned himself the nickname, Forrest Gump, among his friends at UCLA. Why? He had a habit of running from the campus in Westwood to 16 miles out - wherever his feet would take him - just because he felt like it! Well that, and because no one would ever pick him up during finals week.

Kieran is an avid adventurer and will stop at nothing to achieve what he sets out to do.

What's your favorite...

Post-run snack? Delicious bowl of pasta. 

Place to run in London?  You can never go wrong running along the embankment.

Playlist to run to? The Interstellar soundtrack.

Why did you choose to run with Team UC? As a former intern at the UC Trust, I helped out at the 2016 British 10K, and would like to challenge myself this time. Besides, when do you get the opportunity to run through your own city without rushing around to get to work?

Do you have a personal best for the British 10K? This will be the first time I've done the British 10K but I would like to run under 60 minutes.

What are you looking forward to after you cross the finish line? I'm looking forward to telling all my friends and family how well I ran.
