About Us


runbundle is intended as a resource for runners of all abilities.

Our mission is to provide high-quality and entertaining tools and information to the running world.

Who We Are

Simon Loughran

runbundle founder

Simon's an athletics and running coach with several years' professional experience. Formally a software developer, Simon decided to combine his skillsets and built runbundle in 2016.

His specialities are technical analysis sessions and working with new runners. He firmly believes that anybody who can run can enjoy running and his collection of coaching books is getting a bit ridiculous.

Matthew Kiernan

consultant running coach

Matt's a middle- and long-distance coach at Croydon Harriers. He has over 15 years of coaching experience and in that time has worked with hundreds of runners, both new and experienced.

Athletics really is Matt's passion. As well as coaching, he works as a team manager, a committee member, and volunteer at athletics meetings.

Matt casts his experienced eye over the more technical details of the information we provide on runbundle, ensuring high-quality material for our site visitors.

Phil Patterson

consultant running coach

Phil has 20 years of coaching experience under his belt and dozens of runners who thought they couldn't even jog to the corner have completed marathons under his watchful wing.

In addition to providing content for the site, Phil's the first port of call for any new ideas about site content.

Phil's achieved most of his running goals, but is still hoping that one day he'll follow his own advice and stop running when injured.

Nicole Campbell

non-running consultant

Nicole's a keen-eyed biology student who works as our non-running consultant. It's important to us that the information we provide is accessible and understandable to a wide range of people. This includes seasoned runners, beginners, and those who are just thinking about getting started.

In addition to proofreading and testing, Nicole has the arduous task of making sure we don't get carried away with our jargon and make assumptions about readers' prior running knowledge.

Nicole keeps threatening to start running, but that's not much good for a non-running consultant, so she'd be out of a job...
