Nadja - Race Organiser


 My name is Nadja and I’m the race organiser for Sole2Soul running events. Specialising in the Leicestershire's  ultramarathon event's. 

I’ve been running for a number of years ... it was my husband Steve that gave me a nudge to start running . Firstly, on the road and then I found a love for trail running - there is such a free feeling about this type of running . I love being around nature, breathing in pure fresh air and challenging myself over different terrain. You can find out more about me on my blog page as to why I took the step to start running and what had spurred me onto organising and being part of the Leicestershire and Rutland Round ultra marathon events.

I personally wish each and everyone one of you that takes part in Sole2Soul races the best of luck in preparing and being part of such enjoyable running events that you will be sure to remember .

Steve - Route Runner

running runner ultra marathon Leicester

 My name is Steve, route planner of Sole2Soul.

I’m an avid and very enthusiastic trail runner! 

It all started for me back in 2013 when I decided to do the Coventry half marathon for charity and after completing numerous half marathons/marathons I got into OCR (obstacle running) and whilst I loved the races I quickly worked out that I loved the off road running side of it but not the obstacles as much so my love for the trails was born and I’ve never looked back. There is an amazing landscape out there to be discovered, let’s go and discover together.

I live in Leicestershire in the Midlands and love the countryside around here .... a couple of miles out my front door and I’m running through fields, forests and up hills. I’ve met some courageous and talent runners on my journey, made new friends and experienced some very tough terrain. I decided to set up Sole2Soul with my wife Nadja.

I wish all runners preparing and taking part in Sole2Soul ultramarathons the best of luck and enjoy the whole experience .
See you at the next race!

kim - race organiser

running woman, ultra marathon

Hi, I’m Kim, a race organiser for Sole2Soul Running.

I started running in 2008 when I threw on an old pair of Nike Air Max and followed a trail near my house. Many miles later and I am in love with the escapism and sense of achievement pounding the pavement or hitting the trail brings.

I’ve run a lot of marathons and completed ultras up to 100K, but I hope to challenge myself to 100 miles next.

I love encouraging people to chase down their goals, so if you are thinking about taking part in a Sole2Soul event get in touch and I’ll see you on the start line.

paul - race organiser/assistant to the race director

running man, ultra marathon

 Hi, I’m Paul, a race organiser for Sole2Soul Running.

My running journey started back in 2010 after spectating my wife run in multiple marathons. I was inspired watching everybody coming over the finish line. 

Never judge a runner....

I’m a member of a local running club and we enjoy a post race beer and curry almost as much as the run. I run all disciplines from 5K to Marathons, and have set myself a target to complete the Abbotts Marathon Majors.

I love encouraging people to start running and watching them go from strength to strength. 

Good luck to all runners taking part in Sole2Soul ultramarathons.
