Why Choose Her Trails?

At Her Trails, we understand the barriers many women face when considering an ultramarathon: Can I fit it in? Am I good enough? How will I get there? Our training programs are crafted by a team of female experts dedicated to empowering female athletes. We take away the guesswork and provide a structured, supportive environment that allows you to focus on what truly matters - your training and personal growth. Our holistic approach integrates physical training, mental resilience, nutrition, and community support, ensuring you have everything you need to succeed.

Why the T50?

The Tarawera 50km (T50) is an achievable yet epic challenge, perfect for those who have completed a road marathon or a few half marathons and are ready to step up. Starting in the heart of Rotorua, this course covers close to 52km with a total ascent of 1160 meters, taking you through Rotorua’s stunning geothermal areas, lakes, and forests.

Her Trails: Training Reimagined

Our 20-week T50 program is designed to empower you with physical strength, mental resilience, and a love for the journey. Here’s why our program stands out:

Foundation and Progression

We begin with a 4-week foundational phase to prepare your body and mind. The subsequent 16-week progressive phase builds your endurance and strength, tailored to the unique terrains of the T50.

Comprehensive Training

Our program includes strength training, mobility exercises, and yoga to enhance your overall physical prowess. Mindset coaching is integrated to boost your mental resilience. Our holistic approach ensures you’re ready for all aspects of the race. We provide weekly coaching, education sessions and are available throughout the week to answer your questions!

Nutrition, Recovery, and Support

We emphasise the importance of nutrition and physical therapy for optimal performance and injury prevention. Our experienced coaches guide you through these critical aspects of training, providing ongoing support.

Community and Connection

Joining Her Trails means becoming part of a supportive community of women who share your ambition. Together, we inspire and motivate each other, creating a strong network of encouragement and accountability.

Your Journey Awaits...

"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."
