About our group

Coach Kate Running offers both women's running groups and personal running coach services.

Personal running coach services are available for both male and female runners.  We provide 1-2-1 or 1-2-2 run coaching sessions, full running form assessments, online coaching and custom training plan writing.  All services are geared to help you acheive your individual running goals.  For more information please visit

Our social running groups for women operate in both East Hertfordshire & Essex. We have three groups: one in Bishop's Stortford that has been established for 5 years, one in Saffron Walden that started in January 2019 and one in Chelmsford that was new in May 2019. Our aim is to provide supportive, friendly groups, that are open to all, that encourage women to get out running, make new friends and have some fun.

We offer sessions for different ability levels. Our beginners courses are suitable for anyone completely new to the field of running and follow a 0-5km run/walk approach over 10 weeks.  In contrast our intermediate sessions are suitable for people who can already run 5km or more and want to work on endurance over distance, speed and technique.  We cover longer distance running, as well as speed and hill training in these sessions.  Our Bishop's Stortford group runs from Thorley Sainsbury’s Centre, our Saffron Walden group from outside the Golden Acre Community Centre and our Chelmsford group from Melbourne Park.  All welcome, from complete beginners to regular runners. There is no such thing as too slow, not being fit enough, or indeed being too fast, as each session is planned and geared to cater for all abilities of runners present.

All sessions are run by myself, Kate Macfarlane  - I am a UK Athletics qualified Coach in Running Fitness, Endurance Event Group Coach & a qualified Leader in Running Fitness. I am consequently licensed to coach and lead all ability runners of any age, am fully insured, DBS checked and first aid trained.
