Miles with Michelle

Your online running and canicross coach

Run Coaching

Coaching is a two-way process which works better when we have regular conversations about how your training and racing is going. I believe in a very individual, and flexible, approach to training, considering factors such as your work schedule, sleep, nutrition, menstrual cycle, lifestyle, and general stress levels, to help you be the best runner you can be.  One size does not fit all.


I specialise in helping beginners get started canicrossing with their dogs. Canicross can seem daunting when you are new to it. I offer an experienced hand in fitting your dog with a suitable running harness and showing you some commands and tips to help you discover how much fun it is to run trails with your dog.

Guided Trail Running

An experienced trail runner, I provide company, support, and local knowledge in showing you the best trail runs the West Pennine Moors around Bolton and Chorley can offer. I will plan a route and navigate; you just concentrate on running and enjoy the scenery.

About Me

I am a fully licenced Coach in Running Fitness through UK Athletics with many years’ experience in coaching both road and trail runners. I provide personalised training plans for runners in the UK and abroad online and provide face to face sessions and guided runs to people in the Bolton, Wigan, Chorley and Manchester area. I specialise in helping runners achieve a new distance, such as a first marathon, in a safe, structured way. If you are looking for a personal best in your next race, or want to work on your running technique, perhaps I can help. I also work with DogFit to introduce you and your dog to Canicross in a safe and fun way, teaching you the basics and offering social runs.
