Trail Finder's Profile
Off-road running guide and sports massage therapist
I'm a Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist, running Global Therapies (www.globaltherapies.com) with my partner, Tim Budd. I work with a whole range of people from club level athletes to office workers with postural issues. I am also privileged to work with many elite athletes, providing soft tissue therapy that integrates into their ongoing training. My job is amazing, after years of office work that was just well 'ok', it's so satisfying to have found a career I enjoy waking up for.
In 2013 I qualified as Hill and Moorland Leader under the Mountain Training England Scheme, this means I can guide people around the hills of the Peak District (and beyond), and teach navigation skills too. Following on from that I set up 'Running Delights' - leading runners into the world of off-road running. I'm a UK Athletics qualified Fell Leader in Running Fitness.
I'm an active member of the Glossopdale Harriers running club and compete in the occasional fell race. Being in the hills, experiencing nature and having space to breathe is very important to me.
