Why Choose Her Trails?

At Her Trails, we understand the unique challenges women face when committing to a new running goal, especially if you're new to trail running, returning after a break or seeking to get your fastest half marathon time on a flatter trail course.

Our T21 program is specifically designed to support and empower you through every step of your training journey - whatever your baseline is. 

Crafted by a team of female experts, our program integrates physical training, mental resilience, nutrition, and community support to provide a comprehensive and holistic approach.

The T21 Adventure

The T21 is a point-to-point 21km trail run that offers all the stoke of a longer ultramarathon with a shorter accessible distance (bonus!). Starting by the stunning shores of Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) and finishing at the lively Village Green in Rotorua, the T21 course covers 22.6km with an elevation gain of 412 meters. This run takes you through serene lakes, lush forests, and geothermal wonders, providing a picturesque and fulfilling experience.

Her Trails: Training Reimagined

Our 12-week T21 program is more than just a training schedule; it's a transformative journey that prepares you physically and mentally for the challenge ahead. Here’s what makes our program unique:

Foundation and Progression

We kick off with a 2-week foundational phase to prepare your body and mind. The following 10-week progressive phase steadily builds your endurance and strength, tailored specifically to the T21’s unique terrains.

Comprehensive Training

Our program includes a balanced mix of strength training, mobility exercises, and yoga to enhance your overall physical fitness. We also focus on mental resilience through mindset coaching, helping you overcome self-doubt and stay motivated.

"Hello awesome Coaches ūüôĆūüŹľ 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!'


I loved the process of building and completing my first 50km event with Her Trails. A structure that really saw me build my strength and confidence for the ultra distance, whilst still leaving me in the drivers seat to compliment the program with shift work. 

My love of the Her Trails community has been the biggest reward. Currently training for UTK50 and can't wait to push the envelope again. 


"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."
