Rosie Edwards
Coach
Rosie Edwards
Rosie’s number one goal is to help people to love running as much as she does. She attributes her love of running to the people around her who helped debunk the myth that running is an individual sport. Teamwork is the name of the game for Rosie, and she believes that her coaches and teammates over the years have been paramount in her development as an athlete.

Starting out as a 1500m runner, she quickly fell in love with the mud and grit of cross country racing. Now 20 years later, she has taken to the roads and recently competed at the 2021 British Olympic Trials, placing third. Rosie is keen to share her personal experiences, knowledge attained from her sports science degree, and love of the sport, to help you become the very best version of yourself.

Hiruni is the first to point out that we all have one thing in common. Regardless of fitness level or accomplishments, we are all trying to become the best version of ourselves. At a quick glance, you might not think you have much in common with Hiruni. Between her 10 national records for her home country of Sri Lanka and her impressive collegiate career at the University of Kentucky, she has accomplished things many of us may never achieve. Yet, Hiruni is a huge advocate of personal development through goal setting.

At %companyName, Hiruni helps our runners set realistic goals, manage hectic schedules, avoid injury, and get the most out of every run. Each runner is different, and Hiruni loves unlocking the potential of runners just like you.
