RunVerity began in 2014...
My name is Verity Wright, I am an expert running coach that inspires every day people to learn how to run correctly and efficiently.
I started my running journey 17 years ago in my thirties, I had always wanted to be able to run, the only thing I learnt in my PE lessons at school was how to bunk off and trust me this was actively encouraged by my PE teachers. So when I started running as a complete beginner I had to overcome the many barriers that inevitable came up, time, a young family, career and of course fear to name but a few. I loved the freedom that running gave me, both mentally and physically, I had never experienced anything like this before and when I joined my local running club I had the opportunity to deliver and evolve the annual beginner's running course and I spent many years with the running club doing this whilst attaining my Coach in Running Fitness qualification from England Athletics.
I have a degree in Psychology as well as a PGCE qualification and I taught A level Psychology and Health and Social Care at a local 6th form; I am used to teaching in lots of different environments with many years of teching experience. All of these past experiences have led to the creation of RunVerity in 2014, my passion for the many benefits of taking up running, my understanding of Psychology to help break down the barriers that people may experience when doing something for the first time, my comprehension of the importance of creating good habits in coaching and my ability to teach people from all different walks of life. I listen, I am relatable and I offer the opportunity to not only learn to run but also to develop your running in a safe and supportive environment where you have continued access to expert coaching advice.
I fundamentally believe that anyone can learn to run with the right coaching, learning the correct techniques and with the right support and advice. I have influenced hundreds of runners whose running journey started as a complete beginners and I have provided expert advice to established runners for over 10 years now.
I have completed numerous 5 and 10K races, half marathons, 5 full marathons ( including London and Paris) and completed all 7 legs that form the Endurance Life Coastal Marathon Series.
I regularly write running articles and this running expertise and advice is published in over 20,000 regional publications nationwide.
At RunVerity you have relatable and supportive coaches who have your goals in mind and are with you every step of the way; so much more than a running club: the ethos of RunVerity is - “Let’s Run Together”.
