Head Coach& CEO, London and online
Kate is the founder and head coach of Marathonica Running School.
She graduated from MGIMO University in Moscow, holding a degree in Political Science and International Journalism, and started her career as a journalist and PR manager. However, running has become an important part of her life in early twenties, and since them its value only grew.
One day she decided to totally change her life and start doing what she loves most professionally - thus she became a running coach.
Certified coach of UESCA (USA) and LiFR (UK), prize-holder of several races in Russia and Europe, ultramarathoner and trail-runner, member of a number of international coaches associations, Kate follows a very personalised approach to every trainee. She seeks to develop an optimal training schedule, which would let balance life, work and training and harmonically reach the individual's goals. "I base my advice on scientific evidence. Faster and harder is not always optimal, and 'do as i do' is the worst path a coach can follow" - is Kate's credo.
Kate is an ambassador of the #runsome campaign, which promotes commute running as a means of transport and seeks to develop running-friendly environment in our cities.
Being an author for biggest Russian running magazine Marathonec, Kate uses her opportunity to pass her knowledge across to people. She is also a frequent host and guest of podcasts.

Ekaterina Dixon
Coach, Mogilev and online
Hi! My name is Katya Dixon.
I am a certified running and ultramarathon coach (UESCA, USA), ultramarathoner myself, prize-winner of many races in Belorus from 10 to 67 km. Running is my life, passion and therapy.
I started running at the age of 23 and soon understood that I have found my destiny. Everything developed really quickly: I went through trial and error, started a running blog, studies as a coach, reinvented a more mindful approach to training and started to coach others... Running transformed me from a weak girl into a confident marathoner.
My current priority is to run and help others run. To demonstrate, how one can cover great distanced without injury-free and with pleasure. To make people fall in love with running. To help then reach their goals, which initially seamed unreachable. To light the fire in their eyes. To bring passion of running and movement into people's lives.
