    Previously a Director of Training for a multinational telecomms company that didn't feed my soul, my role at TMR is to grow a global community by recruiting incredible people and creating a place where they can be total 'Jedis' in their role; empowering them to work autonomously and flexibly and to work towards a bigger purpose - the health and happiness of women across the world.

    Campaign and Content Manager

    With over 15 years worth of experience in marketing and communications and as a mum of two very active girls, I am in my element as Campaign and Content Manager at This Mum Runs! Every campaign and piece of content we create for TMR is there to motivate and empower women to live a happier and healthier lifestyle - and at the very heart of that is amplifying the voices of all the amazing women in the TMR community, getting to know them and sharing their life changing journeys to help inspire others. It’s safe to say - I love what I do!

  • Our Volunteers and Coaches

    This Mum Runs is a community run by women, for women. Empowering each other, supporting each other and being our own biggest cheerleaders is what we are all about. The heart beat that makes all that we do possible, is our awesome team of specially trained volunteer Run Angels and qualified coaches, or Runmakers.

    Our fabulous team of volunteers are trained by us and make the hundreds of free runs we offer every month possible. They plan routes, are a friendly face when you arrive, warm everyone up and make sure no one gets left behind. Put simply, they are the stars of the show. Get in touch to find out how to become a Run Angel in your area.

    Run Makers

    Our all female coaching team are qualified England Athletics Run Leaders with an added bit of TMR sparkle. With not an 80s tracksuit or clipboard in sight, they are busy Mums just like you and me and understand the struggle to just make it out of the front door. Inspiring other women to become runners is top of their list of things to love.
