Joanne Kemp

Having reached my late 40s I had never considered myself "a runner" having had terrible PE experiences at school. I signed up to Couch to 5K in 2022 nonetheless and haven't looked back.

I have a desk job so spend a lot of time indoors, but love nature. Trail running is perfect for getting me outside and reconnecting, even when I'm short on time. Running made such a difference for me I wanted to help others enjoy it too, so trained as a run leader.
