Andrew Pye

Ambassador

I am a Police Officer in the West Midlands Police, and have a passion for off road running. An avid fell runner representing Mercia Fell Runners, I became a FCiRF just over a year ago, and have a business called Trail Run West Midlands. I am also a Be Military Fit Instructor (previously British Military Fitness). Based in the Lickey Hills, south Birmingham, I aim to coach runners new and advanced to run on the trails, progressing from Road to Trail to Fell. I also coach brand new runners and hold guided runs, and a 1 hour group sessions call HIIT and Run, where runners get the benefit of varied HiiT training, strength and Conditioning and speed and hill reps. I coach 1-2-1 and have recently organised personalised running programs to brand new runners who completed the Birmingham Half marathon.
I have also recently become a coach for ‘we run’ and I am a supporter of #runandtalk, having been a military verteran, (serving in the Parachute
Regiment for 7 years) understanding mental health and how great running outdoors and on the trails is for the mind.
I have run short and long distance races and have entered my first ultra marathon, so not only coach but also experience for myself the various training sessions all runners go through. I have raced the train and beat it, and completed the Wales trail marathon.
I have a great following of runners who attend my sessions as they are varied and fun, and I encourage a friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy running off road.
With a big city also hosting a national running show, been able to introduce and talk to people about the amazing routes trail running in Birmingham has to offer.
