About Me

I am a 26 year old Professional Marathon Runner and Running Coach. I have competed for Great Britain and Wales on several occasions notably at the 2017 World Championships and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

I have a Masters Degree in Sport Coaching specialising in Endurance Running. I have 8 years of coaching experience, working with a range of people from those who want to run their first 5K, to those aiming to run fast marathons and everything in-between.
