Athlete Testimonials

Hills District, NSW

It was an eye-opening experience and privileged to attend a trail running camp lead by Australia's leading trail runner. Brendan is a great communicator who passionately shares his extensive knowledge and love for running. I left the camp equipped & inspired to run my first solo trail running event, all 100kms of it. With Brendan's help, I achieved the goal I set out for.

So impressed by my experience of Brendan's coaching I encouraged two of my children (aged 13 & 14) to attend a kids trail running clinic which he also led. My children, at different levels, were both inspired and enjoyed the clinic. I was greatly impressed to see how Brendan was able to connect with the all the children and once again pass on not only his knowledge but a passion for the sport.

Saturday parkrun Sessions

Parkrun is a brilliant initiative and here at UP Coaching we love this concept. Athletes regularly attend parkrun for a tempo or time trial session which includes a thorough warm up, tempo paced 5km and cool down. Some athletes will run extra distances at tempo pace after the parkrun, for example those training for marathons and longer.

Parkruns are a great way to practise racing too! It gives you the opportunity in a relaxed, supportive environment to practise your racing and hone your pre and post race routines.

UP Coaching athletes regularly attend Mullam Mullam Parkrun (trail), Jells Parkrun. Coaches are regularly in attendance to help and support athletes.

All parkrun sessions start at 7:40, with the 5km parkrun starting at 8am

There is no charge for the Saturday parkrun sessions. Please add UP Coaching as your ‘Club’ during the registration process.
