ABOUT
ME

My name is Kate and I am happiest when I am running, walking and climbing in the mountains and moors of the UK.  

 

I am an experienced ultrarunner and am excited to be able to share my love for running and the outdoors with other people.  As a UESCA certified ultrarunning coach and UK Athletics Fell Running Coach my approach is underpinned by research but focuses on the athlete as an individual.  I am a qualified Mountain Leader and NNAS tutor with extensive experience of teaching hill skills and navigation.  

I started competing in running events in 2008, celebrating my 30th birthday with a mountain marathon. Over the past 12 years I have completed dozens of ultra distance races as well as many of my own challenges.  In 2018 I completed a Bob Graham Round and in April 2021 ran an unsupported round of Joss Naylor’s beautiful Lakes, Meres and Water route.  

 

Race finishes include:

  • Lakes 10 Peaks 1st Lady;

  • 10 Peaks Brecon Beacons 3rd lady;

  • Saltburn Trail Marathon, 4th lady. 

 

I also have 6 Lakeland 50 finishes, and have completed the Northern Traverse, Transvulcania ultramarathon; Lavaredo Trail race, Montane Cheviot Goat; Lakes in a Day; White Rose Ultra; and Ham and Lyme race, to name just a few.

I’m definitely a normal person with a very ordinary life!

That includes my fair share of ‘failure’ and working through it.   I just love being & exploring outdoors, sometimes it’s the challenge of something beyond my comfort zone, but mostly it’s just for the joy of wild places.
