Just awesome run coaching

Have you plateaued?
Do you struggle to hold pace and close out your races?
Have you just signed up to that event that scares you?
Do you want to reach your highest potential as an Athlete?
Perhaps regular niggles or injury are preventing consistency?

Whatever your reason, WELCOME! Putting together a great race- whether a 5k PB, a fast Road Marathon, or a 100 Mile Endurance Run, requires much more than a generic run plan & a bit of hype!

Take the guesswork out of your Training, save your brain power for Running- It's time to hand over the reins!'

Chris Lucas- Specialist Run Coach
I’ve been Run Coaching since 2019, and I bring to the table a lifetime of Running, loads of Racing, and decades of Mentoring experience in various Personal Development, Leadership, and Business fields. I often get asked ‘What is your Coaching style?’ I find that an interesting question as every individual’s needs vary so much, so I feel applying a ‘one style’ approach would be limiting. Some individuals need less on the Training Plan side, but more on the Mentoring. Others are all about the Custom Training Plan and need little interaction or accountability.
My job is to find how I can best serve you- the individual. Then, you can achieve the highest possible outcome, be in the moment when it counts- RUN FREE and Perform your Best!

Get in touch with Chris for a Discovery Video Call and let’s see if we’re a fit and how we can work together.

How It Works

To start- we have your Free Consult Video Call, where we’ll get to know each other a little.
This is important as it’s great to see if we gel right!?

You can expect this initial Consult to take 30-45 Minutes. We’ll dive deep and discuss all matters of your running.

Topics covered but not limited to include:
- Running & Training History
- Current Running Routine
- Your Schedule & Outside of Training Pressure Points
- Running & Race Goals- Short/Mid/Long Term
- Current or Historic Injury/Niggles
- Training Peaks Orientation- what to expect

In a matter of days, you will be following your Custom Training Plan and we’ll be on the Journey!

You do your best to work through the sessions that we prescribe, but no ‘beat ups’ if life happens ok.

If you need accountability and pushing- we will push you, if you need us to lower the bar because life pops up, we will do that.

It’s all about working with what is presented in life as we journey along.

Our Clients

We have a very diverse group of Clients- both in Age, Cultural Background, and Location! We have some fast crews in their early 20’s smashing Road Races, and we have some self-confessed ‘Wise Plodders’ banging out Trail Ultras- and everyone in between!

One characteristic that is common with most of our Group is that they are competitive with themselves and their peers.
They want to reach their full potential regardless of whether their a ‘Mid Packer’ going for a PB in a Half Marathon, or a ‘Front Runner’ going for a Podium in a Mountain Ultra.
