"I’ve trained for a marathon so many times and had to pull out due to injury. Nick said: ‘I’ll get you there.’ I signed up. And he did! And I enjoyed every minute of the race!

It’s been brilliant having someone there to help with strength AND running (not too many coaches out there who can do both) and who is also on hand to answer questions. I can 100% recommend.”

- Isabel Clough, 5-star review on Google


Do you want to run faster and further and enjoy your running, but don’t know where to start? Many online searches for the best training plan still leave you wanting more or, in some cases, injured and burnt out.

Fortunately, running training doesn’t have to be that way. My coaching methodology and approach make it easy and enjoyable to achieve your goals in your running, no matter what they are! 

Training should fit into your life, whether it’s an ultramarathon, like UTMB, or shorter, like the London marathon. A training plan can be overwhelming when that’s all you do. Not to mention that's the quick way to hate your running routine–you’ll burn out before race day, undoing all your progress!

As your online running coach, I provide various resources to find the perfect training plan for you and your goals. My training approach involves more than just running because a quality plan includes supplemental activities. Running alone doesn’t cut it. 

Increasing speed and endurance requires training in every aspect of your daily life. Essential things like proper hydration and nutrition, strength training, and managing everyday stressors must be a part of running training. My methods involve each, allowing you to improve your running comprehensively.

As your running or marathon coach, I provide you with each of the following:

  • A tailored and adaptive training plan. No two runners of mine have the same plan, even if they are doing the same race!

  • An integrated and holistic training approach

  • Accessible and consistent communication

  • Convenient Training Apps

  • Top-of-the-range coaching technologies

  • A running community with educational resources

Making time for exercise is difficult. I’m a busy parent myself and know the struggles of balancing running with everyday life. Through helping my amazing wife through a breast cancer battle, as well as dealing with two wild sons (!), I know how tough it can be to train around life! Running doesn’t have to be an added stressor in this already stressful life. It should and can be beneficial to more than just your bodily health.

I started using running simply as a way to help with serious mental health challenges. I spent my first couple of years in the middle of the pack at parkrun, and I even did horrendously in my first marathon (I was crying when I went over the line! Both in pain and from joy... But mostly pain!) So, I know how it feels just to be starting out in your running journey.

Over the years, I got faster and stronger. I did this by levelling up my training knowledge and receiving specialised help from coaches myself. A marathon coach or ultramarathon coach is so essential to me that I still have my own running coach and strength coach – that's how much I believe in the benefits of coaching!

The proof is in the numbers!

I now have personal records of the following:
- 5km - 17:28
- 10km - 36:58
- Half marathon - 1:19:26
- Marathon: 2:53.01
- 50km 3:59.04

I have also had multiple podium appearances and Top 10 finishes at all distances. In particular, I am strongest at ultramarathon distances! Not only that, but I’ve enjoyed the highlights of being the 1st place winner of the Maverick Adidas Terrex Jurassic Coast long course in October 2022, 2nd place in May 2021 at the BigWayAround 50 km (just pipped by the Team England ultra captain!), and 4th place at Brecon2Cardiff in a field of 500+ in one of the worst storms Britain has ever seen!!!

  • Your goal race(s) is at least half marathon, marathon, or ultramarathon distance

  • You’re currently running regularly but want structure and accountability

  • You are willing to utilise the "non-running stuff" (strength, fuelling, mindset, mobility, etc) to enhance your running
