As a trail running and open water swimming coach, explorer and lover of the great outdoors, Jude gets her kicks from inspiring others to get outside and discover their own adventures, whether they are absolute beginners, have been round the hill a few times or they are ready to swim the channel.
She is a passionate believer in supporting people to connect with the landscape and themselves and sees the benefits a regular dose of the green stuff brings to her own and other’s mental and physical health. Whether that is dipping into the icy winter waters of their local river or putting one foot in front of the other for 100 miles, it all counts. For her, there is nothing better than seeing someone do something they didn’t think they could.
People work with Jude for her down to earth approach, skill in helping people realise their goals, her broad experience of coaching sport and business and her belief that if it is fun, it is fun.
Jude is a regular contributor to Outdoor Swimmer magazine and hosts the Trail Zone at the National Running Shows.
She is known for her long stripy socks, penchant for running in rubber and for her love of cold water.
