Book and Shop

Group Special Offers and Private Groups

Please contact me - I always have special offers available to groups.

1 to 1 or small group lessons and lesson courses

Some people prefer to learn in a more flexible, tailored way. This can be a 1 to 1 workshop, or a tailored course of lessons spread over time - this way go get to build up your learning more gradually. I offer 1 to 1 and small group teaching in the Huddersfield / Manchester / Peak District areas for 90 minute lessons, and further affield for 1 day sessions. Please contact me for further information.

Running Reviews

Reviews are available as one to one in person or by video. Prices for these are discounted if booked and paid for at the time your Workshop is booked. Please contact me with any enquiry you have.


I will fully refund any cancellation of a workshop, if you contact me more than 3 weeks before the workshop, OR you may prefer to attend a different workshop. If you cancel a workshop within 3 week before the date you can ONLY transfer the booked class to another time.  I understand runners do get injured or recovering from injury therefore I am much more flexible. If there is a recurrent injury then I will refund IN FULL the amount after 6 months if the injury has not healed. In the event of non attendence or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice a full payment will be required.

Freedom on the Trails

Transfers to a friend but no refunds within 1 week of the event as I'm often not able to resell the place.
