About Me

I am an enthusiastic and goal driven trail runner and endurance running coach from the United Kingdom. As an athlete, I take part in many trail running disciplines from ultrarunning to fell running and mountain running. Competing however is not why I run every day. It's more the other way round. I compete so I can train and spend as much time as possible on the trails and in the mountains. I would describe it more as a seeking of enrichment, fulfilment and adventure. The competitions just keep me motivated. 

I am grateful to the brands that support me in my endeavours. Precision Hydration who have helped me optimise my hydration and nutrition strategy and educated me on hydration allowing me to help my coached athletes in the same way.

I started running about five years ago, but I found my real love for the sport when I started working with other runners. This first started when I founded a local adventure running club called Bristol Trail Runners. We now have over 200 members who enjoy 20 club events every month. We run as a club on many trails around Bristol and also regularly further afield in places like the Brecon Beacons, Dartmoor and the Lake District. It has been inspiring seeing so many success stories from our members.

My love for working with other runners led me to becoming an endurance running coach. Most of my coaching skills are derived from experience. I have a diploma in fitness instruction and am currently studying physiology, personal training and nutrition.

I have been lucky enough to work with and gain experience from the worlds best movement coach Shane Benzie, as well as sports scientists from Precision Hydration and the University of Bath, registered nutritionist Robbie Puddick and experienced endurance coach Jon Ferne. 

I put my athletes first, and work with them to build perfect training plans for them. Completely personalised towards each individuals lifestyle, goals and fitness levels.

I coach beginners, elites, and enjoy the different challenges that various ability athletes bring to the table. Click the button below to learn more about coaching.
