Based in Chamonix, I am a fully qualified British Athletics LiRF Run Leader & CiRF Trail/Fell Running coach, VTCT Sports Therapist,UK Mountain Leader & an aspirant UIMLA International Mountain Leader. Co-founder of trail-running company The Adventure Running Company. I hold a WMT certification in Advanced Medicine and am currently working through Sport and Exercise Psychology B.Sc.Hons

I am British and have lived in Chamonix, France for almost 16 years. I enjoy anything outdoors: trail running, cycling, swimming, skiing & backpacking. I have coached runners of all abilities and have seen many athletes succeed in numerous races and achieve their much sought after goals. I use a structured but flexible approach to coaching based upon science and research, factoring in the challenges and realities of daily life. I don't believe any challenge is too big or too small and with careful planning and guidance, anything can be achieved!
