Kate Rutherford

"Running has been a daily practice for me, and I've enjoyed challenging myself and hitting new PB throughout the progress. It becomes my motive and helps me challenge and question myself with a positive attitude on other expects of life. I run with my Brooks Hyperion, it's the lightest and highest performing shoes I reckon so far."

Kate was a competitive swimmer from a young age and picked up triathlon after being a full time mum. She is one of Asia's most competitive age-group triathletes as well as competed at an Elite level for HK. She is an experienced NASM qualified personal trainer, bootcamp instructor, Australian level 1 triathlon coach and Aust Swim coach. Kate is regularly invited to schools as a guest speaker to give motivational speeches.

As a coach at 26 Coaching, Kate is overseeing training programmes for aspiring athletes of all ages for triathlon and running covering all distances. She is able to use her own race knowledge, which spans all distances, to help athletes achieve their goals be it to qualify for AG World Championships or finish their first race in style.
