Ajay is a Pro trail, mountain and ultra marathon runner from the UK; competing in races across the world, specialising in the 50-100 mile distance in steep, technical terrain - coming 5th at the British Trail Championships in 2023 he is also a podium regular.
A Co-Founder of The Green Runners, champion of wellbeing through sport and advocate for BAME and disabilities in sport.
Ajay was born and raised in Sussex, where he now trains and coaches remotely all ages and abilities. After school he served in the Royal Marines before being medically discharged with mTBI, he then served as a response Police Officer. During
rehabilitation he used walking on trails for vestibular physiotherapy, this progressed to jogging then running, then 'running got out of hand!'. Fast forward to today; he is a multiple course record holder and a regular fixture in podium positions, but more
importantly he's a real student of the sport and always keen to develop further in coaching.
"Every athlete is unique, the philosophy is to work with you as an individual, providing remote, bespoke and tailored coaching that approaches your running holistically. The training philosophy is fundamentally about translating & applying running science. research. & theory to long-term sustainable development. The main emphasis for most athletes is improving running economy (think efficiency of movement) & aerobic fitness over time, allowing for faster & stronger running as your easy pace gradually quickens. Consistency is king here. There is an inbuilt secondary emphasis on getting the mind mentally ready to execute the plan come race day; being patient, present & deliberate, aiming towards a happy mindset & approach to your running. I'm here for total unconditional support, not just running coaching - a happy athlete will perform well. Yes. you are an athlete! Happy running"
