Run Coaching Services
Run your best with the guidance and support of a professional coach
Most injuries and training plateaus come from training errors - too much, too soon, too fast. Run coaching takes the guesswork out of your training to help you reach your peak performance with an eye on long-term athletic development. Whether you are a new runner looking to run your first race or an experienced athlete looking to step up your game, let’s talk!
What makes SRC different?
We are a collective of professional coaches on a mission to raise the bar for remote + in-person run coaching. We believe in keeping coaching accessible while also providing a high-touch coaching experience.
Communication, genuine care for each athlete we work with, and an environment of belonging and support are at the core of what we do.

Is there a prerequisite mileage or experience level required for the groups?The program is tailored to each athlete and will be adjusted as needed. However, to ensure a safe build the 10k, half marathon + marathon have prerequisite mileage guidelines: • Those running the marathon should be running at least four days a week with a minimum of 30km weekly mileage and be able to do a 20km long run on week one • Those running the half marathon should be running at least three days a week with a minimum of 20km weekly base mileage and be able to do a 12km long run on week one. • Those running the 10km should be comfortable running 2-3 times a week before the start date. No experience is required for the the 5k program.
I'm not located in YYC, can I still participate?You bet! Runners from anywhere in the world can join this cohort. The only difference for participants outside Calgary will be that they do not take part in our in-person group training.
Where and when are your group practices?During the winter we practice bi-weekly at the Mount Royal College indoor track. Practices are held Thursday evenings at 7pm. In April we move our practices outdoors to Riley Park. These practices are held Tuesday evenings at 6pm.
What is your refund policy?Running is a high-impact sport and we acknowledge that injuries can happen. As professional running coaches working within our scope of practice is essential. This means that in the event of a suspected injury we will urge you to seek guidance from a medical professional to determine the appropriate next steps and when you can safely return to running. Please note that if you withdraw from the program past the halfway point a refund cannot be provided. If something disrupts your training before the halfway point of the program you will be offered free signup for a future group program.
Do you offer flexible payment plans?You bet we do! Please email us for more information!
We are committed to levelling the playing field.
Creating equitable opportunities for everyone is important to us and for that reason are humbled to put it out there that we have athlete spots with flexible and affordable monthly fees for runners that otherwise would not be able to access professional run coaching.
With an understanding that systemic barriers exist in our sport offering affordable options is a small first step in dismantling a system where financial resources dictate the availability of opportunity.
If you’re interested in run coaching and find yourself limited by income barriers, please send me an email. If we're a good fit as a coach-athlete team, I will take steps to make it work for us.
