Knowledge & Experience in Coaching Athletes

Vlad Shatrov - Professional Trail Runner - Running Coach

Team Salomon & Suunto Pro Athlete, Runlab Founder & Head Coach, Sydney Running Festival Official Trainer and Sponsored Athlete.


In 2020, I won the Tarawera Miler in a course record time of 15:53:30 and am training for a number of races and events now in late 2020. It hasn't been easy or smooth sailing but one thing that I can always rely on is the way that I train and mentally prepare for any event or coaching session. I love coaching runners and seeing them progress on their journey and achieving their impossible.


My life is running and coaching. I founded RUNLAB and am the head coach. We specialise in group running training sessions in the Hunter and Sydney NSW. Over many years I've worked on making trail running interval sessions more specific but also efficient. Developing accelerated improvements in relatively short sessions and seeing great results for our runners.


I look forward to training and meeting you if you are looking for a program and coach to take your running to the next level.

Learn From My Experience


I've been a competitive Trail Runner and coach for over 15 years. I get the most joy out of seeing my clients achieve great results.


I've been fortunate enough to win several big events, as well as hold multiple race records. It hasn't been easy and there's been a lot of setbacks. I've learnt from these experiences and developed better methods to stay on top of the game.


In these programs I share my knowledge, insights and tips gathered over my years of racing for the first time ever, meaning you get programs and advice that really works.

Structured Programs To Give You An Edge


After years of racing personally and coaching runners, I’ve combined my experience and knowledge to create a series of programs that give you the structure required for you to advance in key areas of trail running.
Key sessions are designed in a sequence to give you the best benefits of technique, strength, technical skills and flow. 
We target key areas of focus to help you improve with Stairs, Technical Trail, Free Flow Running and Downhill with a daily planner for you to really get proactive with your trail running.


    All The Support You’ll Need


    Not only will you be trained like a pro, you’ll be supported like one too! All our programs are very well structured with a guide and timetable to get you started right.


    Access our training hub for instructions for your training sessions and you’ll get to ask any questions each week with our helpdesk or 2x LIVE Sessions with me each week.

    Be Part Of Our Athlete’s Community


    Join in with other runners that are challenging themselves on our Private Facebook Training Group and Strava Club.


    It’s a great place for us to hang out, get to know each other and share our journey. I love seeing your runs, locations, victories and stories. It makes everything worth it.

    Achieve Together

    The programs always structured in a way that all abilities are catered for. 

    It's very encouraging and supportive.

    I highly recommend getting involved with Vlad as a coach. I love it!

    Fiona Mackenzie

    I wouldn't have achieved any of this without the guidance and support from Vlad. He genuinely cares about his athletes and I think that's what makes him a truly great coach.

    Ben Bancroft

    One of the first things I was inspired by was that Vlad was a real person. He had real results that was just so motivating.
