INTRODUCTION

We are uniquely placed to help you achieve fantastic things with your running, whatever your level of capability and experience. Perhaps even things YOU yourself didn’t realise you were capable of!

 

But what sets us apart from others?  A combination of five things:

1. Our belief:

We believe that running is about much more than finishing times, mile-splits and set distances. It can be an adventure - both physically and in self-discovery. And, if you’re up for an adventure, the chances are you’ll have a lot of fun while discovering what you’re truly capable of. 

2. Our experience:

We’ve been tackling races and personal challenges for over 25 years, over distances from less than a mile to 300 miles plus, and over all types of terrain from purpose made running tracks to high altitude mountain ranges. Over the many 100s of races we’ve done, we’ve come last, we’ve come first and we’ve finishing in just about every position in between. So, whatever your level of experience capability, and whatever your goal, we’ll be able to relate to you. 

 

3. Our expertise:

The fact that we are licensed running coaches, qualified through both UK Athletics and the US based Lydiard Foundation, is only a small part of the equation. 

 

Our level of experience across the various running genres and other sports would be hard to match, with specialisms in fell, trail and ultra-running.  Plus we have experience of working with teams and individuals within business and other environments, so know how coaching in a broad sense can be very powerful in improving people’s performance and enjoyment of an activity. 

 

This means we know exactly how to tailor advice and training to your individual needs, and are able to support you in a wide range of areas, such as:

  • Goal setting

  • Bespoke personalised training plans

  • Efficient posture and running technique

  • Skills for different terrain

  • Injury prevention

  • Nutrition strategies

  • Kit choice

  • Route planning and navigation

  • Personal safety in remote areas

  • Building confidence and mental strategies

  • Performance under pressure

 

4. Our passion:

What drives us is a strong passion to help ordinary people achieve extraordinary things through running. A passion that stems from two things we love:

(i) The freedom that running provides, particularly when it’s in beautiful places, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

(ii) How running can enhance people’s lives in so many ways, be that improved physical fitness, new skills, mental well-being, greater self-esteem or improved confidence. 

 

5. Our community:

When you get involved with us, you become part of a thriving community of great, like-minded, friendly people that share our passions. So, you don’t just get the benefit of our own expertise. You’ll have access to a limitless pool of knowledge and experience, both from other runners and the team of experts that we collaborate with.

SERVICES

Our standard support packages are detailed below. These are designed to enable us to support a growing community of runners in a way that offers great value for money, without watering down the level of professionalism and quality. 

 

These all include a blend of face to face/1:1 and on-line/remote services. The reason for this is because, while the internet offers great flexibility and time efficiency, we feel that the opportunities for people to speak 1:1 and for groups to physically meet is important. Our experience is that it improves our ability to support you, and it’s great at enhancing the power of the mutual support within the wider community. 

If you can't see exactly what you're looking for below, would like to talk to us about tailoring something to your needs, or are an experienced coach yourself and would like to collaborate with us, please get in touch via info@peakrunning.co.uk
