Run Leader

In 2023, I completed my run leader course with England Athletics and started leading couch to 5k groups in our village in St Agnes, Cornwall. I am now part way through my England Athletics Run Coaching certification and recently started a hill reps session on Wednesday nights at 7.30pm in St Agnes. If you are interested you can find more details here: https://groups.runtogether.co.uk/BeaconBurners or contact me for guided runs on the south west coast path or Arc of Attrition reccie runs.

In 2022 I set myself a goal of running a sub-3 hour marathon. I managed this in April 2023 at the London marathon with just 17 seconds to spare, and a 10-minute PB! I used a low-mileage strategy (34 miles / week average), with some cross-training on the bike as well as regular strength training, giving me the perfect training block leading into the marathon, completely uninterrupted by injury or illness - long may it last! Whilst I loved London, I don't usually enjoy road running and much prefer to be out on the trails, in the mountains or on the coast path doing ultra or adventure runs. In January 2024 I completed my biggest challenge yet, the 103 mile Arc of Attrition.
