MEET THE COACHES
HEAD COACH: KELLIE EMMERSON
BOT, PhD, Advanced recreational running coach, Les Mills body pump instructor
Kellie Angel née Emmerson has been coaching both groups and individuals for over 10 years in a range of running disciplines, including trail and road, from 5km to 100miles. She has worked with athletes at both ends of the spectrum: those simply wanting to have fun with training and beat race cut-offs, to those at the pointy end of the field, with some representing Australia. Kellie is an Occupational Therapist and holds a PhD in exercise prescription.
This education gives her a holistic perspective on coaching with a strong focus on evidence-based practice. She is passionate about looking at you as a whole, with the belief that training is a lifestyle and all factors need to be taken into consideration for success. Kellie is an experienced elite trail runner in her own right, holding many course records, representing Australia in both Trail Running World Championships and Mountain Running World Championships, and sitting favourably in the rankings for the Ultra Trail World Tour. She is also a new mum and now has first-hand experience in returning to running post-natally.
COACH: JESS COLLINS
BMedRes(Hons), PhD Neuroscience; L2 Recreational running coach; Cert3/4 Fitness
Jess is an experienced trail and ultra runner from just outside Hobart Tasmania who has been competing in races since 2013. She loves discovering and pushing her own limits and enjoys competing in a variety of different events including shorter road races right up to mountainous trail ultramarathons. Jess has represented Australia at the Trail Running World Championship and has been on podiums in several Australian trail races.
Jess works full-time as a neuroscientist at the University of Tasmania. Thus, she is a bit of a science geek and loves to understand the biological underpinnings of athletic performance and recovery. Her job in combination with her passion for competing in ultramarathons means she also understands the challenges of fitting training around a busy work and life schedule. As a coach Jess is keen to help others achieve their goals, whether that be running their first 5km or chasing down a new personal best.
COACH: PAUL TODD
BEd, Level 2 Advanced Recreational Run Coach
Paul has been running for over 12 years and has been coaching recreational runners in group and individual settings for over 4 years. He loves trails, road races, parkruns and ultras. He brings his experience of the highs of those runs that just ‘flow’ as well as the lows of injury to his coaching practice. He is passionate about guiding athletes to run mindfully and with solid technique so they can enjoy running well into the future. Paul is also a Primary School Teacher and, as a running coach, draws on his teaching skills and knowledge.
Paul has completed many trail, road, track and cross country races over the years, including several 100km events. He has enjoyed some podium success in the local trail running scene in Victoria in recent years, including at Roller Coaster Run, the Marysville Marathon Festival and at Maroondah Dam. He loves to feel connected with nature and completely in tune with his body.
