About Martha

I was a latecomer to running, attempting my first run aged 42. I quickly found out that my heart lay in running long distances off the beaten track, and love nothing more than being out on the hills away from it all. I have subsequently gone on to complete races from 50K to 200 miles and have many more plans for the years to come. I am qualified as an England Athletics coach and UESCA ultrarunning coach and coach both privately and for my local running club.

Coaching Philosophy

I love seeing people dream big and helping them to realise their goals. I get to know my athletes, taking the time to find out their perceived strengths and weaknesses, finding solutions to problems and working out how to bring the best out of them.

I guide your complete training journey through to your race, with session plans and feedback delivered via Training Peaks. I back this up with regular client reviews and unlimited contact when you need to ask a question or adjust something. The more engaged you are with your plan and communication, the more you will get from me.

I supplement your training programme with regular articles and ocassional on-line sessions about various topics. I have an active client WhatsApp group for those that want a some community, chat and support from other runners.
