Words From Kaity

I've done lots of running these past few months. From my favourite parkrun, countless loops around the Dorset, to transersing Mt Dandenong over and over, and finally last week doing a 50km ultra over Kosciuszko! 

As I reflect on the chafing, the lack of toenail health I currently enjoy and amount of gels I've consumed, my heart is full 

It's a mighty privilege to toe the trails with such badass, joyful & resilient women. Running is the best, but truly captivating with community by one's side.

Special shout out to the #hertrails gals for being truly exceptional.



"Hello awesome Coaches 🙌🏼 I can't believe it's Week 18 and UTA50 is around the corner!!!! I don't recognise this runner I've become! I've gained so many skills through the program and pushed through the fears of hills and anything to do with speed training lol... When I started running last September I never imagined I'd be running these volumes - I'm completely hooked on trail running! THANK YOU for all the guidance, support, and community!"


'Over the past year or so I’ve discovered the joy of trail running through Her Trails, and at this point I think I’ve completed all the programs you have created! Thanks again for all the great advice, support and encouragement - I wouldn’t be running wild without you!'


""What an epic 20 weeks I've just been on. I didn't know if it would be possible. I am a busy mom of three, and finding balance in life has always been a challenge. The Her Trails 50km program has been a game-changer for me. It has taught me how to manage my time and energy effectively while pursuing my passion for running. The support from the coaching team and the uplifting community at Her Trails has been invaluable. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking for guidance and a supportive community in their running journey."


"I just want to express my gratitude to the amazing Her trails team. I am so so happy to have discovered Her trails and have loved every aspect of the last 20weeks.

The race yesterday exceeded all my expectations and was the perfect race for me. Throughout the whole race I had this unwavering belief that I could cope with anything and finish and it was because of the training program and all the mindset, breathing and nutrition advice I soaked up along the way.

Thanks to you guys I had strategies to combat the nerves at the start, discipline to keep my pace early and strong intention to remain calm throughout.

Your expertise, your infectious positivity and down to earth nature is just so engaging and welcoming."
