Sarah Piercy (born c. 1981) is a British wheelchair athlete. At the age of 19 and in her first attempt at the race, she won the 2000 London Marathon women's wheelchair competition after a tire puncture slowed defending champion Tanni Grey-Thompson. She has competed in a further four London Marathons, but has been seeking to compete in the equestrian events in the Paralympics as well. In February, 2009, a local online newspaper noted that her equestrian ambitions were being stymied because local riding stables would not allow her to ride their horses due to concerns related to safety regulations.
