Anna-Marie has been diagnosed with a severe ultra-running habit and can usually be found searching for the perfect trail. Her first foray into ultra-running was the CCC (2008) where she narrowly scrapped through every check point with minutes to spare. Fast forward to 2017 she successfully completed the UTMB placing 7th lady, 5th Brit and in the top 100.

Over the last ten years she’s combined her two key passions in life; ultra-running and exploring the power of the mind in a quest for peak performance. Self-certified fair weather athlete she’s happier in toasty temperatures and prefers sunshine racing taking part in the Half Marathon des Sables Fuerteventura (2017) 1st lady, Marathon des Sables (2015 and 2018) 2nd and 5th lady respectively, Ultra Trail World Tour (UTWT) Cappadocia Ultra (2016) 1st lady and Oman by UTMB (2019) 1st lady.

Happiest outdoors Anna-Marie is a certified Performance Coach who loves to escape the confines of four walls and take conversations into nature. Former British Army Officer, she has worked in challenging environments from snowy Arctic tundra to hot and sandy deserts though currently resides within the rolling countryside of Wiltshire. Anna-Marie is on a mission to encourage a different approach to work where our natural environment is valued and brought into the business world. She co-hosts the podcast ‘Coaching Outdoors’ to encourage coaches to take their practice outside.
