Training & Support

For 2017 we have teamed up with Lee Kemp to help provide training points and tips making your own goal achievable. Lee has been running Ultra’s since 2011, from 30 miles on road and trail to 75+ mile mountain races. He has represented Great Brittan at the World Championships winning medals and in 2013 Lee won the British Ultra Trail Running Championships, alongside many other race victories and course records.

Whether you're working towards your first 5k, or Ultra, Lee can offer coaching and training plans to help you achieve your goals even if it is to simply help you improve your race performances.

The following training opportunities are available to Surrey Hills Challenge participants:
