Educational Testimonials

‘I have found Real Runners to be professional, enthusiastic and energetic in the work they do. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to run out-of-hours clubs; talented athletes passionate about what they do. They are great role models for the young people in the Partnership.’

Sandra Blenkinsop, Partnership Development Manager, Kingston School Sports Partnership

‘Real Runners have been working within the Richmond and Kingston School Sport Partnerships for the past 3 years. Throughout this time they have established themselves as one of our primary deliverers and have built up strong working relationships with all schools they have visited. The coaches at Real Runners are excellent role models and their boundless energy and enthusiasm inspires children to achieve more than they thought possible. Real Runners are the real deal!’

Michael Skinner, Competition Manager, Richmond and Kingston SSP’s

‘Real Runners offers a great balance between the serious competitive nature of athletics, the implications for a healthy lifestyle and of course having fun! They have been offering ASC at Nonsuch Primary School for the past 3 years and children look forward to the summer term when they return. The club is always popular; with children going home feeling tired, challenged and proud of their achievements!’

Mrs Dibsdall, Head Teacher, Nonsuch Primary School, Sutton

Personal Training Testimonials

‘Before I’d heard of Real Runners the thought of running 5k never mind a marathon filled me with dread. Now, months later and with the London Marathon finished in under 4 hours I find running a hugely enjoyable way to maintain the best level of fitness that I’ve ever had. After just a few sessions with Real Runners I felt not only stronger physically but also mentally. When an injury seemed set to ruin my hopes of being ready for the marathon, nothing was too much trouble. Regular weekly contact kept me focused and the novel new training alternatives kept me interested and fit enough to get straight back to running when I’d recovered. A fantastic all round package, tailored perfectly to fit into my schedule and achieve my goals.’

Howard Smith, BA Pilot

‘I started as a half-fit, plodding, 41 year old with a charity place in the FLM, never having attempted a marathon before. I finished the FLM faster than my initial target time, and Kevin managed to get me fitter and more motivated than I have ever been in my life. He pushed me hard during our sessions, with never a negative word said, and I can now comfortably run faster, stronger and further than I ever thought I could. I would highly recommend the services of Real Runners, and a huge ‘thank you’ to Kevin for sharing his limitless knowledge, enthusiasm and motivation with me.’
