Are you a trail runner looking for support, structure and advice to help you meet your running goals? Perhaps you want to start out running off-road but aren't sure how to plan your running week? Maybe you have entered a trail race and need someone to help you stay on track with your training? Whether you are a new runner or someone with more experience; whether you want to run your first 5K, or are working towards an ultra, I can help you progress towards your goal.
I'm an experienced trail runner and mountain walker, and have worked full-time as a trail running coach for the past 6 years. As a former teacher, I've always loved helping people succeed in every aspect of their lives, and especially through the great outdoors. My desire to enable others to improve themselves through having new experiences, learning new skills and gaining confidence has led me to a career coaching in the sport that I love.
I work with clients both remotely and face-to-face, and enjoy getting to know the person behind the runner - their goals, strengths, skills, confidence levels, lifestyle and more - so that we can work together to progress. I have a particular interest and strength in coaching women, including those who are going through menopause and struggling, and work hard to build a training programme around the runner, rather than fit the runner to the plan.
"I just wanted to thank you so much for the incredible help you gave me. I was actively using the tips you gave me on the mountain, and it was phenomenal the impact they had" (Charmaine)
"I'm loving the way we're training. I feel so different when I run now. I feel so much stronger in myself". (Sara)
