Clare Pearson   John Hampshire Coaching

Clare is a Level 2 TrainingPeaks running coach with relevant UKA qualifications. She specialises in trail running and in particular ultra distance. Off road running is becoming a popular sport for all people of various fitness levels. Clare loves to work with people to help them succeed at their own goals; whether that's a personal best, a completion or a podium. Clare will work with you to design a plan that fits in with your day to day life and helps you get the most out of each session.


My own running career began when I was working in a disabled unit where I needed to be fit enough to get to emergencies. I ran two to three times a week to keep fit and because I enjoyed running and its relaxing effects.

After university I stopped running for a while but I came back to it after a break when I realised how much it helped me to relax and I enjoyed the social side of being part of a club. I also enjoyed racing both off and on the road, and pushing myself to see how fast I could go. I was introduced to the local running club and I decided that the next stage was to run a marathon. A disappointing time led me to chat to more experienced runners who introduced me to more structured training. I also began doing my own research and developing my own training plans.

In 2012 I met and began working with my first coach; this was an eye opening experience! I had always thought that coaches were for professional athletes. I soon came to appreciate the value of an objective eye - and ran some of my very best races by learning what motivated me and the importance of balancing hard training with rest/easy days. It was at this time that I began to take an interest in the application of psychology to sport.

In 2017, after my mum died of cancer I decided quit my job and combine my two passions: working with people in a psychological way and running.

Races I enjoy:
Le Championnat du Canigou
La Montée du Grand Ballon
Fuilly Sorniot
Le Grand Trail de l'Aspre
Killian Klassik

Athlete Requirements

I will work with athletes whatever their goals so long as they are able to communicate to me; I prefer to set training based on heartrate rather than pace for trail/mountain running.
