Coaching for Runners

OPTIMAL RUNNING (OR) will help you improve performance over 5k, 10k, Half Marathon and Marathon distance races.

We use a systematic approach to training, building individually focused training schedules and plans.

If your running times have peaked, your training has become stagnant or you can't figure out how to improve any further, a fresh outlook may be the answer. Letting an experienced coach take responsibility for your training schedule is a positive step towards that goal.

Give us a try. It costs a maximum of £2.60 a day(i), the cost of a cup of coffee. It may be just the incentive you need to improve your running
