I have been involved with Nuclear Races since the beginning. My main role is managing the Nuclear Races merchandise but I also backrun for larger events and I am part of the water safety team. I adore getting out on course & seeing people challenge themselves, overcoming their fears & most importantly having fun in the mud!
I am a qualified level 3 personal trainer, a mum and a member of Wild Forest Team. I love obstacle racing & staying fit. I was the second lady to cross the finishing line at Nuclear Races Rush in 2020. My favourite race is Nuclear Races Challenge Cup even though I am not a big fan of the cold water. My favourite obstacle at Wild Forest is the rope climb. I have climbed Kilimanjaro, run the marathon twice and completed the three peaks 24hr challenge successfully. I love being a PT I find it rewarding and I like meeting new people too.
Aside from the usual 9-5 day job behind a desk (which I do enjoy J ) I have volunteered for the Red Cross for a number of years and been an Ambulance first responder.
My main passion is running, and became involved with several running clubs in the Essex area over a number of years. Currently qualified with England Athletics LiRF and coach at my local club near Chelmsford.
After taking part in Fallout in 2015, my involvement with the Nuclear family has increased year by year. Starting with back running. I became involved with Nuclear Striders and the Nuclear Races team. When I’m not in the Forest loving mud, we as a group can be located at Park runs and a regular training sessions which are increasing. Seeing anyone improve and enjoy themselves is most important to me.
Finish Line not Finish time!
I started my journey running my first Nuclear Races in 2017 & I was hooked. I could not get enough of the amazing people and the fun & when the opportunity to join the team arose I jumped at it. I joined the team in 2021 working mainly at Nuclear High Ropes and I back run for large events at Wild Forest & I am part of the water safety team. Not many people can say they do their hobbies as a job.
My obstacle course racing career began in 2014 at Tough Mudder, I fell in love with the sport and ran Nuclear Rush for the first time 2 weeks later. It soon became competitive when I qualified for the UK Champs in 2015 hosted at Nuclear. For the next year I trained hard and began to take races more seriously, by the time 2016 UK Champs came round I took 1st place in AG. This was also where I joined the mighty Team Phoenix. From there I felt fast tracked to becoming a much better racer than I could have been on my own, and the team soon merged to become Nuclear Phoenix. Since then I have competed in multiple Euro and World Championships, and hold my head high by saying Ive never been unable to complete an obstacle during a race. From years of training, racing and competing I am proud to be able to teach classes where my OCR journey first began.
I am a new member to the team and I am loving being apart of it. I have participated in many Nuclear Races and have also ran 3 marathons and many half’s. I have also taken on the 3 peaks challenge twice both in the winter months and completed the last one in January 2018. My love for the mountains has seen me take part in the Fan dance collection, these are special forces selection test over the Brecon range in Wales open to the public. I love working as team member and love being a part of Nuclear team, where we can help people over come fears they may have and help them conquer the obstacles out there on course.
I am a level 3 Personal Trainer and when I am not at Wild Forest, I am running boot camp sessions and helping people achieve their fitness goals. I have been into OCR for about four years, competed twice at the OCR World Champs held here at Nuclear Races and love every aspect of the sport. I especially love helping people overcome obstacles here at Wild Forest, it gives me a massive buzz. I am here to help you achieve your goals and get you ready for your next race, my knowledge and enthusiasm will make your experience both fun and worthwhile.
After suffering ill health due to stress I finally decided that I needed to fight back and re-started my 10 year lapsed running career and as my 1st challenge I took on a Nuclear Races.
I faced more fears and challenges that day in one race than ever before, loved every second and have never looked back.
Then from training at Wild Forest to working here and to getting to be a part of helping people face those fears and challenges and win through is what makes Wild Forest such an exceptional place to work.
On race days you’ll find me waiting with a hot cuppa on the finish line…..see you in the mud :-).
Mother of 3 boys and 2 German Shepherds I have been lucky enough to come from an incredibly active family from horse riding competitively to competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I’ve always been a country girl. I’m never happier than when I’m outdoors surrounded by nature
I ran my first Nuclear in 2015, at the finish line in that moment I was absolutely hooked and I’ve never looked back. I have taken great pleasure in the subsequent years introducing my family to the joys of Nuclear Races too.
I love helping people of any age overcome their fears and work completely outside of their comfort zone, it’s truly awesome being in a position to help people do something they never thought they could and be witness to that sense of achievement, being able to do this alongside my love of nature with the Wild Forest Team is for me, the best job ever.
I’ve always been into sport whether it’s swimming, athletics, Irish dancing or getting muddy running around an obstacle course.
I studied sport development and fitness at College but never thought I’d actually have a career in fitness. But without a doubt this is a best decision I have made. I love being outdoors and meeting new people.
I have been part of the Nuclear team for three years which within that time I have qualified as an Lead Instructor. I love seeing others overcoming there fears and completing a task/obstacles they didn’t think they can do. Such a joy to watch and I am very lucky to have a job I absolutely love and work with an amazing team.
I have the best job in the world!! I’ve been a personal trainer since 2011 and karate instructor since 2012 I also run my own fitness classes for children and adults. I have been into fitness all my life and am passionate about exercise and want to pass that on. I love teaching/training at the Wild Forest as the scenery and conditions changes every day, to teach people the basics on the obsticals is so rewarding.
My qualifications are level 3 Personal Trainer, level 3 Pre-Post Natal, level 2 children in exercise 0-5 and 5-16, 2nd Dan Black belt karate, 1st Dan Black belt Kick Boxing, First Aider at work and Mental First Aid.
I muddy love my job!!! I have been qualified as an instructor for two years, and I have worked as a bootcamp instructor over that time. I love being outdoors, and meeting new people, every days so different at Nuclear!! Running is my favourite type of fitness, especially with my dogs!!
I am a level 3 PT with a passion for running and cycling. I first entered obstacle races in 2011 and completed Nuclear’s inaugural 42K Oblivion race in 2015. I then transitioned to long distance triathlon having competed in full and half Ironman events for the past 4 years. As a regular open water swimmer, I enjoy the challenge of Ice swimming in the winter months. My motivation and reason for being a PT is to help clients prepare for events in a safe confident way looking at fitness, mental attitude and nutrition.
Working for Nuclear races is different every day. I’m proud to be a part of the team and love its all inclusive attitude. It’s an environment where every visitor and client is made to feel welcome and at home.
I was invited to attend an event at Nuclear and I was hooked. It led me to train to become a PT instructor and I’ve not looked back. You will always find me in the forest covered in mud having the best time.
