Jenny Quilty

I was born and raised on the west coast in Abbotsford, BC. Having briefly lived and ran in Alberta during my bachelors of Physical Education and Recreation I was happy to return to British Columbia to complete my Masters of Occupational Therapy. Running got me through school as a form of stress relief and community engagement.

Since finishing school I have taken my running further completing various half marathons, short and middle distance trail races, and ultra-marathons. Further, I have become more competitive in my racing and trained to for improving my distances, speed, and strength.

I look forward to working with runners who need support to determine the right steps to take towards their goals. I love merging experiential and scientific-based knowledge to find the right approach to training and routinely use weekly goal setting as checkpoints to keep training motivating and on track.

Katrina Abram

I am an Ontario native and I moved to the Fraser Valley in 2016. After living in Chilliwack for only 2 weeks, I joined the Abbotsford Trail Running Club and became completely immersed in the trail running community.

By day, I'm a microbiology and molecular biology laboratory science officer but you can, without fail, find me on the trails every single weekend sweating out that hard mental work. Since age 9, I've been running on cross country teams and track teams and started running longer distances competitively in 2011. My first marathon was in the Swiss Alps and since that day, I have been training for, and running, long distances. In 2015 I raced the Boston Marathon and last year I completed my first 50 km ultra marathon.

I know that all runners are different and each person deserves a personalized approach to their training. I know what it's like to have a big goal, fail, train harder, and meet that same goal the next year. My coaching style is all about enjoyment in the sport and preventing injuries so that you can run your best race yet.

Together, Jenny and I use both of our scientific backgrounds paired with our running experience so that we can create the most up to date training plans for all of our athletes. We want to build something that suits you, that works for your lifestyle, and that can get you where you want to be!
