Trail Transformation
Ultramarathon Coaching

Ultrarunning is a lifestyle. If you live it, you’re constantly thinking about training, fueling, sleeping, and recovering—on top of your work and other commitments. This is where Trail Transformation can help. Whether you’re a first-time or seasoned ultramarathoner, training for a 50K or 100-mile race, we develop a coaching program that fits your day-to-day needs. Our ultimate goal is to keep you injury-free, so you can continue pushing your limits for years to come.

With training plans that include regular speed workouts, tempo runs, easy days, and even rest days, the Trail Transformation coaches make training sustainable, fun, and smart.


Benefits of Working with a Coach 

  • Structure and strategy in the training program

  • Accountability and feedback

  • Guidance on nutrition

  • Feedback loop, insight and input on training

  • Access to a coach for questions, concerns and celebrations for success.

An ultramarathon is a great adventure. Yet one of the most difficult aspects of the ultra race distance is knowing how and when to begin training. Once you do start, following through with a training plan can be difficult, especially when life gets busy or if you’re not seeing results you expected. 


Having an ultramarathon coach by your side gives you a guide for the journey. From advising you on the right gear to helping you break through training plateaus, our coaches are with you at every stride. 

If you’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime, let’s get to work.

    Communication is key! Your coach will be happy to help you adjust things in a way that best meets your schedule. The best way to contact your coach is via email, but if it's urgent as in changing a workout the day of, a text message will likely work best.

    Absolutely, Trail Transformation has coaches that specialize in all areas of running.
  • I’m just getting started in running, is that ok?"
    Yes, the start of running is one of the best times to work with a coach. Often new runners try to do too much too soon and end up getting injured. Another benefit of working with a running coach early, is they can help you break any bad habits before they are truly formed.

    Yes, many of our coaches are Physical Therapists by trade and specialize in helping runners return to the sport they love.
  • I have a question for the coach, how do I reach out?"
    Shoot us an email at
  • Can I request a specific coach?
    Yes, if you have a relationship with a coach already, and are looking to work with them specifically we will do our best to accomodate. That being said, our priority is always making sure that the client gets the coach that is best equipped to help them maximize their training.
  • I don't have a gym membership, how do I do the strength exercises?"
    The coaches will work with you to develop a routine that you can perform at home. The gym opens up opportunities for more exercises, but they can also be done at home.
  • I'm not close to any trails, how do I train for a trail race?"
    Our coaches have ways to simulate the challenges of a trail race. If you can run, then we can train you for a trail race.
