She also runs in the 800 metres, 1500 metres, 3000 metres and 5000 metres distances, but has never competed professionally in these disciplines.[2]

Lake's 3000 m steeplechase personal best of 9:39.03, achieved in Zagreb, Croatia in 2017, places her as the seventh quickest British female steeplechaser of all time in the 3000 m discipline.[3] This performance also allowed her to compete at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, coming six seconds inside the qualifying time.[4]
