Today we are really excited to introduce a new addition to the site. It was spearheaded by TSer Sandi Nypaver, an avid trail runner and pursuer of change and betterment within our sport. Like TS, Sandi also noticed the lack of information, education and resources for women in trail running, so she wanted to help do something about it. 

We’d like to introduce our Female Running Coach Directory, the newest resource to the site.

This directory is in place to celebrate the women who make it their priority to help you achieve your trail running goals. There are many extraordinary female coaches in the sport, but it isn’t always easy to find them due to lack of media coverage or marketing.  So, we’re stoked to provide you with this listing where you can contact coaches to learn more about their methods and if they’re a good fit for your racing and training aspirations.

Please note that this list is far from complete. We have included a submission form at the bottom of the page for recommendations and additions. It’s our goal to build the largest female running coach directory in the sport. 

Thanks for everyone’s continued support!

  1. Hello Gina,
    This comment is a little off subject but I thought I would throw it out there. I have been to quite a few trail running films/festivals. I notice the vendors or sponsors there and was wondering why Trail sisters isnt showing representation?!!! Just a thought. Would love to see you at these events!!!!thabks Maria LeMieux

  2. Hi Maria,
    Thanks very much for your support and comment! We’d love to attend films/festivals, but it’s very expensive. The cost of travel, expo fee, lodging, etc. Trail Sisters is definitely growing, but our events budget isn’t large enough to cater to all the events out there. For 2019, we will be at WSER, Hardrock, and are putting on a USA road tour (dates/locations coming soon). I’m sure we will add a few more events as the year goes on, but it really comes down to budget. Right now we are doing as much as we can. Thanks again for your note and suggestion!

  3. This is a great resource! I’ve been looking for something like this. Hopefully it just keeps growing as word spreads 🙂
