Sharman Ultra was started in 2010 by ultrarunner, Ian Sharman. As an experienced runner, Ian appreciates the steep learning curve in distance running and spent years researching training methods for ultras. This includes extensive trial and error refinement over his racing career, from which he continues to learn. In 2014, we welcomed Ellie Greenwood and Liza Howard to the coaching roster, two of the top female ultrarunners in the world, then in 2015 Sean Meissner joined the team after successfully coaching many runners for years. Since then we've expanded to bring 2015 Ultra Runner of the Year, Magda Boulet, on to our coaching team, plus 2014 USATF 100 Mile Champion, Dr Matt Laye. In 2021 Skyrunning Champion, Hillary "Hillygoat" Allen and sports psychologist, Addie Bracy, joined.
All clients benefit from the combined knowledge from all coaches but have a lead coach with whom they have calls and emails.
