I am the owner of Mole Valley Fitness & Founder of Mole Valley Runners a voluntary England Athletics affiliated club & online running community in the Surrey Hills. I’m also a Mum to 3, Personal Trainer, Run Coach, Kettlercise Instructor, ex mental health nurse & Mental Health Champion.
I absolutely love running and what it gives, good times and bad. I love an adventure, seeing the wonder & excitement of runners when they discover new trails or discover a new view and believe me they’re in abundance in the Surrey Hills. The best reward for me though has to be has to be coaching & encouraging members of my running club to #support each other to #believe the can #achieve what they may feel impossible and #RUN whether for 5mins or hours. (The hashtags have become our ethos)
Less than 3 years ago I set up a 0-5k beginners group through RunTogether. I started with 3 runners. Less than a year later I founded Mole Valley Runners a Facebook community to get people in the local area meeting and to create a place where they could get advice & share their running stories, inspiring others to run. In September 2018 we became affiliated and now have 570 community members. I have some amazing run leaders & volunteers who help run the club.
I am excited to be involved in a fantastic nationwide initiative, The Schools Running Movement, that encourages children to #MoveForLife in order to improve general health and create a sense of wellbeing whilst building mental health, strengthening resilience and improving overall confidence. I am the lead for Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire & Hertfordshire.
