Debbie Watts

Ambassador

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’ve ran countless half marathons over the years and am currently enjoying the world of the Ultra spurred on by raising awareness for my 7yr old son who has Alopecia. It’s an amazing journey of self discovery, realising you are so much more than you ever thought possible.

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.
