Total Run Training

Total Run Training offers bespoke run coaching for all levels; whether you are looking for a way to get into the sport, a way to take on your first challenge or race or a way to take your training to the next level.  I have both the knowledge and experience to get you there.  I appreciate that every runner is unique and have their own goals and ambitions.  I work with you, your life, and your time constraints to put together a bespoke training programme that allows you to maximize your training.

More often than not people look to a coach for two reasons: one, because they don’t know how to take their training to the next level and/or two, that they don’t have the time to sit down and carefully plan their own training. Having a coach allows both of these to happen. Our training programs are tailored to best utilise your time as well as get the most out of each session.

Meet Zoe…

I am 35 years old and I live in a little Welsh village called Holt just 10 miles outside of Chester.  By day I am a marketing manager for a small chain of pubs and inns.  As most people know, fitting training in around a full time job is hard on a daily basis especially when you have a border collie dog as I do who needs a lot of exercise.  This is how I found my passion for off road running, I figured I would just take the dog running to kill two birds with one stone!  But what I actually discovered was a passion for something that I had no idea existed.  My dog Merlin is my running partner who does lots of my long miles with me.  I love to run with my dog in Snowdonia, Moel Famau area, Sandstone Trail, if there are hills and trails then I’m there!

When I am not running I do enjoy walking the dog, I find it a relaxing way to unwind.  When I get the chance I love to get away to the snow, both skiing and snowboarding, there is nothing quite like a sunny warm day on the hill.  If I get the chance I like to go cycling but since having a border collie that is like the Duracell bunny I just tend to feel guilty leaving him and that I would much rather be running or walking with him than riding a bike.  Having a boyfriend who is a triathlete has got me into open water swimming over the past few years but finding the time is normally the problem!

My favourite race to date, well actually I would have to say two favourite races to date are the London marathon, nothing will compare to that experience, it was and always will be one of the best things I have ever done.  And the other is the Snowdon Trail Marathon that I ran in 2015, it was its first year so a new event but was just the most stunning, well organised and fantastic event I have done.  The weather on the day was some of the worst weather I have ever seen with wind and rain coming in sideways, the organisers persevered and the volunteers stayed up Snowdon for 8 hours whilst runners came through and finished the race.  I will definitely be back to race it again one day!
