Dawna Jodoin | 2000-2021 | Ultra Runner
Founder of BUSH BABES & BRO'S -Trail Running

HI, I’m Dawna, an Ultra Runner from the Sunny Okanagan.

I have been in the fitness and coaching industry for the past 21 years. My passion is trail running, yet I love anything to do with the out doors and trails.  From trail running, hiking, to snowshoeing, and mountain biking.

My focus is on helping others reach their fitness goals, sharing my experience and Coaching knowledge to help you achieve personal trail running and/or racing dreams.

Whether it’s your first-time hitting the trails, you just signed up to run your first trail 10km event or you have committed to take on your first Ultra. Nothing brings me more gratification than helping you with planning and executing your training program to obtain your goals.

Choosing a Coach that meets your needs athletically and personally is a big decision. 

By taking this first step in looking for a Certified Coach you are already heading in the right direction.

I believe that in a Coach/Client relationship we are a team! Creating and maintaining open lines of honest communication building a trusting relationship, working together towards achieving your short and long term goals.

As a Coach I will assist you with the structure of a training program, adding the fluidity of family/life and a little spice of training fun.

In 21 years of Trail Running I have completed many races.
