Find Your Feet was born in 2009 from a spark of inspiration to help people to find their feet. With a background in elite orienteering, marathon and trail running, our founder, Hanny Allston, was inspired to bridge the knowledge and support gap between elite athletes and the every day Australians also striving to grow, play & perform wilder. From adult running classes, to life coaching and later trail running camps and tours, Find Your Feet has emerged into a multifaceted, award-winning Tasmanian-based company with arms in coaching, trail running tourism and outdoor adventure retail.
In 2014, Hanny joined forces with her husband as co-directors and they have lead their Team into more and more endeavours -
"We did not set out to run a business. We grew within our means, fuelled by an absolute belief in wanting to offer our community an active, outdoor and wilder way of life. We also saw Hobart as the Chamonix of Tasmania, a recreational paradise of Australia, and wanted to showcase this to the world."
The Find Your Feet Tours have been hosted by Hanny, Graham and a Team of coaches and guides since 2015. With trail-running holidays in Tasmania and overseas, these tours facilitate a plethora of runners from all different ages and experience levels to explore wilder parts of the world, themselves, and their love of the trails.
In 2018 Find Your Feet was awarded the Tasmanian Telstra Small Business of the Year. In 2019 they opened their second store in Launceston, Tasmania.
"We truly believe that whilst we feel like we are only just starting, we are already so proud of just how far we have come since Day One - Hanny's adult running classes in the parks of Hobart. Most importantly, we have maintained our own husband-wife relationship and outdoor lifestyle through all of this which fuels our creative ideas, connection to the community and belief in ourselves."
We are an independent Tasmanian company committed to providing exceptional outdoor retail, trail running tourism & educational experiences to empower our community to find their feet.
