5k, 10k, marathon and half marathon coaching
We try not to take ourselves too seriously and we try to make our runs as enjoyable as possible, but also enjoying pushing the boundaries of what we are capable of. We run for fun, to train for races such as Bristol and Bath Half Marathons, the London Marathon and local races.
Sunday morning runs along the byways and country lanes of the Cotswolds in good company are as idyllic as running can be.
