Online Running Coaching

Running and now online running coaching is a passion of mine and I love seeing runners that I coach fulfil their potential and achieve their running goals.

Coaching is more than just a job to me and I am always onhand to support everyone that I coach.

Every runner is unique and has different needs and requirements so my coaching style is flexible.  I like to stay up to date with the latest science and research but believe that there isn’t a one size fit all approach.

My training plans are bespoke, I do not use cut and paste plans, every plan is written from scratch and developed based on feedback from you.  You will also have free access to my Strength and Conditioning for runners app.

Amazing coach. You get personal training plans that she will adapt if niggles come in or you have other stuff to work around. I also know from others that she covers such a range of goals so whatever you are aiming for she tailors the plans to you.

She gives constant feedback through the app she uses to set training. The training syncs to my watch so I can just go out and the session happens.

I also got the opportunity with Liz to go to Kenya in January. This was a trip of a lifetime (well i hope to go again, yes it was that good).Running out there and being in that environment was incredible. Totally immersed in running and surrounded by beautiful people and scenery (though the hills did feel a bit much at times!)

I totally, highly recommend Liz if you are a runner that wants to go that bit further and is just unsure how (I was that runner a year and a bit ago!)

Since starting my journey with Liz I have smashed my PB’s in every distance, including a 21 minute PB in the marathon! I went from an injured runner to completing my first ultra race in less than 3 months. Putting the race times and PB’s aside, I have grown in confidence as a person from my months of consistent training. I always have plenty of questions for Liz, some which I feel silly for asking but Liz is always there to answer them and give me the support I need without judgement. I couldn’t be happier being trained my Liz!

I have been coached by Liz for nineteen months and I can’t recommend her enough. She has helped me to increase my confidence by tailoring my sessions weekly to compensate for at times injuries/ niggles from my hyper mobility. She is always available by message and zoom calls are brilliant to help with focus and reflection on progress. I have seen increases in pacing and race placing that I have never achieved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be fast to have a running coach?

Absolutely not.  Running coaching can benefit you no matter what your speed or level of running experience.

Do I need a specific goal race?

I think it is useful to have a goal race to work towards but its not essential especially if you are new to running or coming back from time off.

How quickly can I expect to see improvements?

Consistency over time is key to improving your running.  Although it’s not unusual to see improvements within a few months, it’s important to trust the process.

How long do I have to sign up for?

I offer packages ranging from 1 months commitment through to 1 year.  To get the most from the coaching, I find a minimum of six months is best.

What happens if I sign up for a year but am unable to run due to unforeseen circumstances?

Your coaching can be paused or put on hold until you are able to resume.

I’m unsure if coaching is right for me?

Book a free consultation and we can discuss whether the coaching is right for you.  You are under no obligation to sign up if you book a call.

- Jordan Gilbert

Great coach. Helped me through a number of races over the past 6 months (fell, trail and road) and gave good structure to my training. Due to working shifts and having a 2 year old often meant unexpected changes in my routine, so a quick email or message and the training plan was instantly adjusted to suit. Monthly what’s app calls to have a catch up and the training plan was always 2 or 3 weeks planned in advance so nothing was ever just sprung on me which I find key to getting the right balance training/life balance.

Jonny Martin

If you are after a no-nonsense running plan that works then Liz is the perfect coach. She is extremely accessible, methodical and her coaching plans coupled with regular review sessions has made a tremendous difference to my running confidence.

Subhash Agarwalla

I started my coaching with Liz in November ‘22 still recovering from an injury. I like to have a running coach to guide me, to help me set realistic goals & to encourage progress. I felt from the outset that Liz was the right coach for me as she listened to my fitness/injury concerns & adapted my training plan so that I could recover properly & slowly get back into doing what I love, running. It’s good to catch up over video call to give & receive feedback. I’m enjoying my running again which is so important to me.
I highly recommend Liz & her coaching.

Dawn Eccles

Worth every penny! I’ve been coached by Liz for almost 6 months now and really love the support – with a custom training plan to fit around busy work and family life, but also with simply great listening and advice via messaging, phone and email! Overcoming some unavoidable niggles and colds, with Liz’ help, I’m pleased to have progressed and to have banked several PBs in a short period of time.

Magdalena Schoerner

I have now had liz as a running coach for just over a year and honestly never thought I would ever get the results that I’m starting to see whether is half/full marathon PB’s or 100 mile races Liz is the right coach. I was worried that I would just get a running programme and off I go but my experience has been much more personal, everybody is different some people like a lot of interaction and some not so much liz has a great balance and can not recommend her coaching enough.

- Emma Richmond

Liz has continued to be very personable and professional from the start. From our initial consultation with her about our plans to run a 50 mile ultra in middle age, throughout our training.
She has crafted our training programmes to suit our goals, lifestyles and abilities. With regular chats, if needed, she has reassured us, answered questions about fueling, fitness, aches and pains, all sorts.
The software Liz uses is very convenient, with videos to show us whenever we want the exercises she has for us. This is great as it doesn’t matter if you’re home late from work, it is always to hand. I can also see what she has in store for the next week!
Having the accountability was one thing I initially thought I needed to have, but not now. I’m in the flow of training. I know she is there analysing the data and reading my comments. I know she isn’t giving me something I cannot do, which would demoralise me. The increase in training has been steady and not a shock to my body or brain.
I’m actually enjoying training, which I did not think I would ever say!
I have never felt that, although not your archetypal athlete (in my mind), that I wasn’t worth giving time, effort and sound advise to.

Denise Smith

Fantastic training sessions that push me in a way that I can handle (with hard work!) and I would never plan myself. Seeing progress already, running fastest times in over two years – not bad now I’m in my early 50s!!

Steve Ansell

Liz is the best coach that I have ever had. I have been with her for 5 years now and have only reached PB after PB in all my races. She tailors my running program to my needs and is incredibly knowledgeable with regards to what I need and how I need to train each week. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a highly experienced coach with a brilliant work ethic. 🙂

- Antel Muller

“I have been following Liz’s plans for the past year and have achieved a PB in every race distance.  Without Liz I wouldn’t have been as consistent and probably would have given up on running. She is always there to offer advice and pick you up when you are down. I have never felt as healthy and this is all down to my training. I will be sticking to Liz’s plan for the foreseeable future. I still have to crack the sub 3 hour marathon and achieve an ultra  

Thank you Liz for all your continued support and for putting up with all my moaning. I do secretly love running honest.”

- Jemma Whyman

I would like to thank Liz for getting me through my first Marathon! Every time I had a problem, and there were quite a few along the way, Liz was able to give advice that worked in practice. Im fairly certain I would have picked up injuries that would have scuppered my chances if I had not engaged with her.

Lawrence Glennon

Liz has been coaching me since November and the whole experience has been fantastic. Liz is professional, knowledgeable and incredibly approachable. I have noticed a huge difference with following a structured and progressive programme. I have hugely valued the extra advice on fueling, kit and pacing ahead of my first ultra. Thanks Liz, I feel in very safe hands! 🙂

Sophie Tabor

Liz has been fantastic for my running. Coming back from a frightening experience I needed someone who understood I needed to retrain slowly but with confidence. I love waking up each day with an email telling me exactly what training is in store and that it syncs to my watch. The accountability means I go out and get it done knowing that I have hit key target sessions. Even the sessions I dread I end up enjoying – try saying that on your 5th hill repeat- but I honestly do even at the time of doing them. She is at the end of a What’s App for any concerns or questions and offers regular training calls if needed. Let her coach you, you won’t regret it

Georgina Frowde

I’ve been coached by Liz since the beginning of 2022 and only have great things to say; within the first 6 weeks I’d already achieved a new sub 20 PB in a 5K race and I’m confident that we’ll continue to chip away at my times as the year progresses. I’ve always been really impressed by how Liz listens to the type of runner I am (low mileage) and adapts my training to make the most from that – she also, quite rightly, points out when I might be over committing in terms of back to back races which is exactly what I wanted from a coach. It takes a lot for me to sit back and allow somebody else to plan my training for me (I’m a type-A control freak) but I feel really comfortable with Liz doing this and trust her expertise entirely.

Victoria Stears

Liz is an incredible coach 🙌
I started with Liz in 2019 8 weeks PP from my 4th baby with the intention to run the London Marathon…I could barely run 2.5 miles in 30 minutes, I’ve never completed the marathon though my own choice but 2021 saw me take podium positions in harder mid distance trail races and personal bests all round, not just by a few minutes, I’m talking over 30 minutes off my trail 10 mile time.
Not only does Liz give you a foolproof plan, she’s also super supportive and understands my busy mum life, swapping things at short notice and it’s never a problem.
A supportive, understanding coach is an essential to me before results, and Liz is that coach…oh and she gets the results too 👊

Carly Evans

I’ve really enjoyed the support and encouragement from Liz.
Over the last year Liz has coached me to a new pb at 5km and 10km which, considering I’m a seasoned runner in my 40s, is something else.
I think what puts Liz above other coaches is the genuine interest she shows in what I am doing, always remembering what races I’ve entered and also any injury problems I have. She has adapted my plan to suit my lifestyle and needs and nothing seems too much trouble.
I certainly feel that I am more than just a number and I believe it’s that personal touch that makes her better than the rest.
A good coach should encourage and inspire and she does this in a very natural way.
I would highly recommend anyone thinking about run coaching to contact Liz.

Sally Smith

I’ve been Coached by Liz for 5 months now, I’ve gone from just turning up at races and winging them to running 260km a month. Every goal we set, I beat and it makes all the hard work worth while. I would highly recommend Liz!

- Matt Evans

I contacted Liz for help at the beginning of the year. After 18 months struggling with knee injuries, it became apparent that to get back to consistent running, I needed a structured plan incorporating not only running, but conditioning/ gym work and yoga as well. Liz was excellent, she prepared a program which slowly increased in intensity per week. Any queries/ questions I had with the training, were quickly answered via e mail or if required on the weekly call.

10 weeks in , a 47 min 10k and a 1 hour 52 min half marathon. I can therefore highly recommend Liz, in achieving your running goals.
