Ultra Race Coaching

Last modified: May 15, 2017

Please note: this is a monthly package and further months are priced at £60 per month.

My name is Matt and I’m a ultra runner, coach, motivational speaker and race director. I work with runners of all abilities, helping them achieve their goals, whatever they might be. I believe in a personable approach to my coaching and will support you the whole way.

Training for an ultra race is a huge undertaking, whether you are experienced or a first timer. Whatever race you are signed up for, with my experience and coaching, I can ensure that you are both physically and mentally prepared when you stand on that start line, excited, rather than daunted, by the challenge ahead.

I offer coaching for any type of ultra race, whether it’s a 50km ultra or a 6 day stage race.

If you are doing the Marathon Des Sables, then you may be interested in my specialist package for that race.

“I have found that the coaching plans from Matt have allowed me to get personal bests over various distances. Brilliant how they can be tailored around your personal life and can be amended during the plan! Would always be my first contact when looking to hit my next goal.”
Ben Hall – multiple marathons and ultras

“I would like to say a massive thank you to Matt Buck from Running Adventures for the training plan. If I can do a 50 mile event and still feel this good afterwards, then that man is clearly a genius!“
Nicola Jennings – Gower Ultra 50
