Kevin's journey with the Trail Kids project began in 2009 when he started to use the trails and hills for improving aerobic fitness and mental toughness in the tennis players he was working with.
During these sessions the children and teenagers showed significant levels of enjoyment during the sessions! In 2015, along with Mark Eiffe they formalised the structure for Trail Kids project.
Maria joined the Trail Kids team in 2018. Coming from an elite running background alongside her love for nature and excellent rapport with the children allows her to excel as a Trail Kids leader.
Maria's work as a PE and science teacher has allowed her to further her knowledge of education and knowing how to create motivational environments for children and adolescents to thrive.
