As of May 2024, I am now on Trust Pilot (see link above). Before then, clients contacted me directly with their reviews. Here’s what some of my coached athletes have to say. Hopefully these testimonials will help you to understand a bit about my coaching and how this works for the runners who have trusted me with their running journey:

“I’ve been working with Martha for around 9 months now. During that time, Martha has coached and nurtured me through several events, from parkrun to backyard ultras. I’ve equalled my parkrun PB and knocked 5 minutes off my half-marathon PB without either of these goals being a primary focus. But Martha makes sure that no goal is forgotten. Her attention to detail is fantastic, picking out areas for praise and providing encouragement where and when it’s needed, all the while making minor adjustments to your training plan to accommodate busy lives, injuries, and running goals. It’s an absolute pleasure to have her in my corner helping me with everything to do with my running, from form and strength sessions, to race plans and nutrition, and rest and recovery. The biggest compliment I could give her is that she fills every one of her runners with confidence to be the best they can be, and I trust her completely with my training, and will continue to do so.” (Pete, March 2024)

“Whilst I have only been coached by Martha for a couple of months, I have already seen real progress and benefited from her expertise. She had brought consistency, structure and confidence back into my running, whilst the TrainingPeaks platform ensures accountability for each run as well as the Strength and Conditioning sessions. Martha is both supportive and empathetic, understanding work and home commitments and balancing my program accordingly. She is readily available via WhatsApp to offer advice on everything running related including nutrition, race suggestions and kit, and always feedbacks after each session. Additionally she has created a wonderful community amongst her athletes – acting as virtual cheerleaders and offering additional support and guidance. I couldn’t be happier with my coach.” (Judith, February 2024)

“I have known Martha for about 5 years and during that time I have seen her progress from a general club runner to an ultra specialist. She has competed in many and varied long distance events and always returns from them with a wealth of personal learning. She still coaches at her local running club, mainly on the track. She is committed to green ethics in her personal lifestyle and advocates races which have the least impact on the environment. I think her decision to become a full time coach is a very wise one. She has a lot to give both in practical experience and personal warmth. Her current runners have very varied abilities and are spread across all running disciplines, some wanting faster 5k, 10k and half marathon times, others looking at the longer more challenging races. Her coaching programmes are individually tailored but not rigorously enforced. She is very aware that the plan she sets an athlete is only a plan and that things may change which could mean alterations or even cancellations depending upon the runners circumstance or fitness on any particular day. It is great to see the achievements from some of the people she coaches and I know they are happy to be working with her.” (John, October 2023)

“Martha provides a personalised, bespoke training plan with all the information you need so that you can focus on the run! She is a fount of all knowledge, keeps you motivated and inspirational in her achievements. Not only this but she strives to be a ‘green’ runner too! You could not ask for a better running coach.” (Hannah, August 2023)

“I have been training with Martha since the beginning of April and i can honestly say that within the first week of my trial, I knew I wasn’t going to stop. Not only does Martha have superior knowledge on all things running, building up  strength, & conditioning your body but she also has this innate quality that makes you feel like you are a priority. Her kindness and supportive nature are additional qualities that set Martha apart. It makes such a difference, it always feels like I have someone routing for me every time I go for a run regardless of whether it is good or bad. So if you are thinking of training with Martha, then go for it because you won’t regret it.” (Ali, August 2023)

“I would highly recommend Run With Martha. She has really helped me over the last few months, I can feel and see improvements in such a short time with my running. Thanks Martha.” (Lisa, June 2023)

“I can’t recommend Martha (Run With Martha) highly enough! The attention to detail and dedication she provides is simply fantastic. From the personalised training plans and the feedback to the really useful information that she provides in explaining everything, nothing is too much trouble and it all adds up to getting the most out of your running.” (Pete, May 2023)

“I worked with Martha to overcome a long standing injury and achieve a 10k PB. Martha provides clear communication and feedback, targeted activities and a structured but flexible plan. Martha helped me take 2 minutes off my 10k time, and I am able to consistently run without pain.” (Stephen, April 2023)
