Ultra marathons

Have you signed up to an ultra marathon and wondering what to do now? How do you train for an ultra, often on hilly trails and rough terrain when you live in the city? Have already run a few ultras but want to improve on your times?

I have experience working with various runners training for ultra marathons. For some it has been their first and for others they are now well seasoned in the world of ultra running. It can be particularly daunting thinking about training for an ultra when you live in the city, but it can be done and I can help to support you with your training and suggest training that will work for you.


As every ultra is different, a one size fits all package is often not suitable for these types of races, which is why a fully personalised training plan can really help. It’s also vital to train your mind as well as your body for ultras, and having the right mental strategy and mindset for the race is something I can also advise you on.


Training plans can be for as long as you need to take you to your goal race, but I’d suggest a minimum of six months to be fully race ready.
