Coach athletes in all endurance events with a specialism in the Marathon.
Every session is tailored to you and your individual needs.
A proven track record of success: Beginners, Junior to Seniors, Elite and Age Group Podiums, Olympics and World Championships and Weekend Warriors.
The value of a coach should never be underestimated and is key to getting the best return on the time you invest.
Training plans personally tailored to the individual are essential to achieving your goals. Generic plans from books, magazines or the Internet just don’t give the attention to detail that runner’s need and deserve.
I’ve been in the sport for 40+ years as athlete and coach. I currently lead the Scottish Athletics Marathon Project and am the Lead Endurance Coach at my local athletics club. For the last 20 years I’ve helped athletes of all levels achieve their goals and more from PB’s to winning numerous Age Group and Senior Championships on Road, Track and XCountry. Through a combination of art, science, & keeping it simple I will help you optimise training around your schedule.
I’ve had the privilege of coaching my sons Callum and Derek from promising Junior athletes to 02:08:14 and 02:12:49 marathoners. Both competed at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games where Callum placed ninth and went on to place 4th in consecutive World Championship Marathons in 2017 and 2019 and ranks 3rd in the UK all-time rankings. I also coached Jess Piasecki to her 02:25:28 debut marathon ranking her first in the UK in 2019 and 3rd in the UK All Time Rankings.
Seeing athletes fulfil their potential and more at every level in the sport is the reason I coach.
