Because we think Sydney is best explored in running shoes

Lexy Wilson's trail running philosophy - Being out on the trails is a mini adventure and one long picnic!

The Happy Trail Coach was founded because as runners, we know the joy running can bring, the sense of community it builds and the mental health benefits it clocks up. From beginners to ultra-marathoners - we don't want you missing out simply because you're a busy parent juggling life, lack confidence in your capability, or feel your goals are unattainable.

Run with us to take an adventure, kick goals and Run Yourself Happy!

Personalised programs, support & flexibility are key in our approach

We guide you, integrating training into daily life

We're also busy parents managing busy lives and careers

 Lexy is a warm, friendly and nurturing coach and training sessions can be splashed with a healthy dose of distracting conversation, if that is what you are after, or the peace of the bush, whilst quietly being guided to your perfect pace. Lexy listens, supports and understands - so you can simply focus on running.

Hi, I'm Lexy, Happy Trail Coach 

In addition to being an accredited Level 1, Recreational Running Coach with Athletics NSW, I'm Clinical Director, Senior Speech Pathologist, Behavioural Analyst and Founder of Climb Learning. I'm also a busy mum to an awesome little person and servant to Bert, our adorable pup. 

So yes, the schedule is busy and I get what it takes to juggle life and strategically carve out time to maintain fitness, set goals and recharge in nature.


Achieving running goals requires sweat, hard work, dedication and support. It's the type of support you get that make's the difference. That's where I fit in...
