The Running Charity uses running to improve the lives of young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in the UK. Since Jan 2020, we have a hub here in Leeds, where I'm a Programme Coach (read more about it in the Blog section and contact me if you'd like to get involved!). 

I've been a member of Valley Striders AC since 2007 and regularly coach training sessions as well as teaching yoga specifically designed for people who do a lot of sport and think they are the least flexible person there!
