LYNDAL MALONEY - HEAD COACH
Hi! My name is Lyndal Maloney and I am a runner, athletics and running coach, educator, mother, wife and founder of Serotonin Running.
Why am I a coach? For the sheer pleasure of helping someone reach their goals - whether it be helping them cross the finish line in their first race, or getting them through the mental and physical challenges of a long and difficult trail run. My specific interest and expertise is in training women in accordance with their unique female physiological traits, including younger women, peri-menopausal and post-menopausal women. I am a great believer in the joy of running and the adventures that your two legs can take you on.
I have thirty years of running in my legs, with a lot of knowledge gained along the way. I enjoy all types of running - from road to trail, 5 k's to 100 kilometre races! Some of my favourite race experiences have been the Hume and Hovell 100, the UTA triple in 2019 (the 11,22 and 50km events), Tarawera Ultra, 6 Foot Track Marathon, Mt Solitary Ultra, Glenbrook Marathon, SMH Half Marathon, and the Australia Day Knapsack Race.
With the return of racing in 2021 I've been lucky enough to get a few races in already - winning my age group in the Australian Alpine Ascent 50 km event, completing the UTA 2021 Triple - the 11, 22 and 100 km events, as well as dabbling in track racing at the Southern Sydney Track Ultra. Here I was placed 3rd female in the 12 hour race.
I'm pretty fortunate get to be able to train and race in so many amazing races in the Blue Mountains, in Australia, and overseas.
