Our Story so far

Team Elite Running launched in November 2020 in response to the huge surge in people taking up running. We received lots of messages about the best way forward and realised there was a huge gap in the knowledge we had learnt as professional athletes and the knowledge that was available to the everyday runner so we wanted to provide the opportunity to educate and be a part of peoples journeys through running. We launched on Instagram with the aim of supporting 20 runners of all abilities and backgrounds and provided free personalised 1:1 coaching to them individually for 6 weeks. The result? We loved it, we loved seeing their love for running growing, the community it created & ultimately their performances hugely improved and it gave us a boost in our own training at a time when we didn't know we needed it! Following on from this, we wonderered what the next step was for Team Elite and decided to expand our team of runners and offer further personalised coaching as well as free training plans and access via articles and videos to our own personal performance team of experts.
