Coaches are most certainly not just for the elites! A coach keeps you accountable and guides you towards your goals. A good coach will consider your personal circumstances and help you adapt training to fit your life. A coach also takes the guess work out of your training. With a running coach, you get feedback to make adjustments. A running coach will focus your energy and keep you on track at every stage of training. They will keep you motivated, help you prevent and manage injuries and will build your confidence as well as your mental and physical strength.

There are many exceptional coaches to choose from, and finding the right one for you can be daunting. In the lead up to UTA 2017, Ultra-Trail Australia will be working with a carefully selected group of amazing coaches. UTA affiliated coaches coaches are qualified, extremely approachable, professional and talented and come recommended by us!

With years of trail running and ultra running experience, including Ultra-Trail Australia itself, Wild Runners coaches know what it takes to get you to the start line ready and to the finish line (more or less) smiling!
