We recognise that there are many outstanding programs out there, many of them free. But for the most part training programs in the public domain are aimed at a cohort who are naturally fit, experienced, athletic and confident with their running journey.
The Slow Coach aims to create a safe, inclusive and welcoming space for runners who might otherwise be intimidated by running programs. No matter your age, experience, fitness levels, size or aspirations we can get you from flat to finish line.
