SPECIALTIES

I specialise in mountain and trail running from vertical kilometres to ultra marathons

PHILOSOPHY

I use a science based approach that utilises the current peer reviewed literature to develop a long term plan to achieve your goals, whilst listening to your individual needs. I aim to use the scientific literature and established philosophies to build a framework of my own to aid all runners.

COACHING EXPERIENCE

I have coached myself for over 5 years and had athletes for 3 years. Together we have achieved victory in races as wide ranging as 5k hill events to ultra distances. I have worked with people from all walks of life and abilities and I feel as confident in getting someone to finish their first event as I am in training someone who is aiming for a podium place.

ABOUT ME

I love the outdoors, and moving through landscapes confidently is something that all humans should be able to do, it is so good for the body and mind. Away from physical pursuits, I enjoy reading (not always about running), music and building.

BIG INFLUENCES

If I had to name any particular coaching influences then it would be Jason Koop, Uphill Athlete and current scientific literature.

RACING HISTORY

In terms of my personal racing experience I began, like many others, going for a short flat 2 mile run after work, and was immediately smitten with the running bug. I went home and signed up to run the Torbay road half marathon, which I found extremely rewarding, however it was evident that my love of trails, mountains and rugged exploration was where my passion lied. From this point on I dedicated myself to technical terrain and longer endurance races, and with that came with an incredible community which supplies limitless challenges, experience and support. Personally I found success in various races ranging from 10k to 120km, below are just a few of my achievements to date.

Selected race results

  • Endurance life coastal marathon 1st
  • Something wild 10k 1st
  • Snowdon Skyline 3rd
  • Lavaredo ultra trail 120k 69th (2nd Brit)
  • Tenacious ten hour challenge 1st
  • Race the Light 1st
  • Kernow vertical kilometre 2nd
  • Dartmoor crossing 1st
  • Dartmoor crossing extreme 1st
  • Brecon Beacons ultra marathon 3rd
  • Haytor Heller 4th
  • Deep river half marathon 2nd
  • Salcombe coastal marathon 1st
  • Brecon Beacons fell race 3rd
  • Wild night run 1st
  • Wild night run (altered route) 2nd
  • Burrator horseshoe 4th
  • Burrator noir 1st

CERTIFICATIONS

  • UESCA running coach
  • Training peaks accredited

PRs

As someone who focuses on mountain and trail races PR’s aren’t as meaningful because the courses are never directly comparable but I have done:

  • 50k 4:24 across Dartmoor
  • 120k 17hrs Around the Dolomites for Lavaredo ultra trail

    Not being a natural runner I was slightly nervous to begin!! However, David has been amazing, we have worked together to create a plan that pushes me in a way I am comfortable but still so I am progressing every time. I feel I improve with every run and am excited to see where we can go! Can’t recommend him enough!
