ABOUT ME

Steve Hopwood

Hi, I'm Steve, a UESCA certified Ultra Running Coach.

I live, breath and coach ultra running.

It's my life.

I moved to the Lake District to climb more but discovered fell and mountain running. The runs got longer and longer and I found my niche.

Whether it's racing 50k, a 24 hour mountain challenge or a multi day unsupported mission I love it!

My Coaching packages

For me, there are two non-negotiable things that have to be considered before starting this journey.

It has to fit in with your life. Life happens, family, friends & work for 99% of people comes before running and that's ok. Life happens so training has to be flexible, which it can be!

Training has to be fun. It has to be varied and never boring. Sure, there will be days that are hard or you struggle to get out of bed for that hill session but that happens to everyone. You will never regret a run once you're done.

  • Everyone is different and my approach will be different depending on what you need.

  • Coaching for me isn't just about giving you a training plan and telling you to get on with it. Support is always there and questions are invited. It's a team effort!

  • Running is obviously the focus but strength and conditioning, yoga, mobility & drills sessions will more than likely be included at some point on the journey as well as cross training.

  • Scientifically backed research and training methods.
