Gareth had a late start into running after playing team sports for most of his life and found that running was the best way of him staying healthy whilst balancing work and a young family.

Gareth’s strengths and enjoyments lie in seeing others succeed. After taking on a volunteer weekly coaching role at a large running group, Gareth wanted to learn more about the key principles and theories involved in training and coaching and formalized this by becoming an accredited coach in 2019.

Open-minded when it comes to running and coaching, he is always looking to improve and consider new research and methods and how to apply them in training plans for today’s busy society.

Gareth enjoys being a part of the local running community and will often be at a local parkrun willing to jump in and help pace someone to a PB.
