My Philosophy. My Purpose. The Journey. The Enjoyment. The Startline.
Preparing you for your next adventure
I co-host Run to the Hills podcast sponsored by Chia Charge. Each week, John and I review UK trail races, discuss news on the running circuit, interview all sorts of people, from winners, to finishers, to race organisers to those whose running has just changed their life or those of others!
Wherever you are based in Morzine you are never far from a running trail. Marked trails help you find your way, but there are also many variations to routes linking different climbs and paths, all you need is a sturdy pair of trainers and some free time!
Throw your watch out the window for running around here is not about counting miles or pace; the terrain, the vertical climb and technical parts make each run a mini adventure in itself. Though you may find your heart racing up climbs or your legs turn to jelly on the descents the views will always be worth the effort. And the knowledge, when you are safely back in Morzine, that your two feet have taken you to places not many tourists dare to venture!
For lots of extra information on running in Morzine head to the Morzine Mountain Running website.
I also host a local English running group. We meet most Wednesday mornings, come snow or shine and cover a variety of local trail routes. Head to our Facebook group for further details.
If you’re spending the summer in Morzine, there are a number of different local trail races to get involved in. The Hauts-Fort starts in Morzine and finishes in Avoriaz and is a great way to get to know lots of local trails and test yourself over some challenging terrain. There are two different distances, plus a relay. Its a very friendly race and a great ‘first time’ trail race. Discover more events on the Morzine Tourist Office website.
I am hugely proud to be a member of the Centurion team both as a runner and a coach. Their legendary 50 and 100 miles races throughout the South of England are as famous for their professionalism, well marked routes as they are for the band of wonderful volunteers and check point food! If you haven’t done a Centurion race yet, put it on your bucket list!
Living and training in the mountains requires decent kit 24/7. I truly believe that Aussie Grit are one of the best brands of proper outdoor apparel on the market.
Mountain rehab provide me not only with working legs after a tough training week, but also a gym space to do the all important strength and conditioning I need to stay injury free and running strong. This is vital when my house is full of kids and I need to just focus on being an ‘athlete’ for an hour. I can get my gym sessions done quickly and efficiently.
