Trail, Mountain & Ultra Running Coaching

Team GB Mountain & Trail Runner

"You will only discover your true potential when you  break down the barriers of your perceived limitations"




Seb Batchelor

​I have an obsession with learning and testing the limits of human performance and continuing to develop an in-depth understanding of sports physiology. Over the last 15 years this obsession has led me to trial and refine training techniques that have seen me reach the highest level in two separate sports.

I am one of only a handful of athletes to have represented Great Britain in cycling and running disciplines. I spent 7 years as a professional XC mountain biker where I was a member of British Cycling's Performance Programme. I then transitioned to mountain running, where I compete for Team Salomon, and have been involved in both the GB Mountain and Trail Running squads. In 2019 I became the first British man to represent GB at the 3 major Mountain/Trail running championships in one season - Trail World Champs, Long Distance Mountain World Champs and European Mountain Champs.


It is in the mountains that I feel at home, most like myself, relaxed, content and happy. As such I love lots of different mountain-based sports, from skiing to climbing.

Alongside coaching and my own training and racing, I work as a Farm Animal Veterinary Surgeon. I am also rarely seen without my two Border Collies, Cocker Spaniel and Australian Kelpie by my side!

I gain a huge amount of satisfaction from helping others, whether a seasoned athlete striving to be a world beater, or a new or experienced enthusiast aiming to become fitter, healthier and happier

My clients range from GB international runners, to national level cyclists, to those wanting to be fitter to enjoy the mountains more. 

Within three months I was running mountain routes in the Cairngorms, which I never imagined possible at that stage, was enjoying varied training every day and as a bonus lost 5kg. If you are debating working with a coach, either to improve your race performance or simply to get more enjoyment out of your training, take the leap - Seb has you covered!

I started working with Seb as my performance had stagnated and I felt like I was at a point where I needed some external input to make the step up. He explains the training process very clearly and is always open to discussing anything I don't understand. Likewise, he has always been there to make changes to my training when other commitments have arisen. His experience is invaluable and has undoubtably made a massive difference to both my physical and mental approach to races.
