I'm Clare the founder and owner of The Kent Running Coach.
I'm Kent's Certified Running Technique Specialist and Dynamic Movement Skills Coach with the Running School London, a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist.
I spend my days helping adults and children move better, run better, run further and run faster and I LOVE it.
I started running after the birth of my daughter and have run for fitness and the enjoyment of running ever since. In the beginning although I loved running and the freedom it gave me it hurt. Sadly my body just wasn't ready for it. It was suggested I visit a Kinesiologist and that is where it all began. I qualified as a Kinesiologist and through my clinic I met a number of athletes looking to understand their nutrition needs and to get their bodies and minds in the best shape for races so I trained as a Sports Massage Therapist. A few years later, I discovered Mike Antoniades, one of the world's leading coaches in running, speed development and rehabilitation at the Running and Movement School in London and trained as a Certified Running Technique Specialist and Dynamic Movement Skills Coach. I founded The Kent Running Coach in 2017 and have since worked with 100's of adults and children looking to start their fitness journeys, improve their running technique or to improve their performance in their chosen sport. Having participated in a number of triathlons, 10ks, half marathons and mud runs my approach to training is primarily to have fun and enjoy it I hope this is reflected in my work.
