When not running wild, Jude can often be found in cold (or warm) water and she loves sharing that experience with others. If you would like to know more about how Jude and coaching can help improve your open water technique, build confidence, prepare you for swimming events, please get in touch.
Jude has swum in lakes, rivers, the sea and the odd puddle including over 15 long course swimruns around the world (Otillo Hvar, 1000 Lakes, Isles of Scilly, Breca Buttermere, Jersey Hokey Cokey), triathlons, long distance swims (24hr Swim for Life, Windermere) but is equally happy dipping into hidden wild swims spots and enjoying being immersed in all that is open water swimming.
Even though she spent her childhood sailing, it wasn't until she decided to do a triathlon after the birth of her first daughter that she thought she had better learn how to swim 'properly', well a bit more than a proficient breast stroke. Turns out it took a bit longer than expected but totally worth it for the places it took her and the fun she has had.
Jude is happy working with groups or individuals whether they be looking to gain confidence and skills in open water or wanting to train for a longer swim or swimrun event.
