How My coaching Works

 I have coached runners around the world for the past 23 years, using my Recovery Based Training System. I ran my first ultra-marathon in 1977 as a 15-year-old and I have run 258 marathons and ultras on road and trail, with a 2hrs 34 marathon best. I also have my green number for having run 10 Comrades ultra marathons with a 6hrs 38 min best time. I have provincial colours for cross country, marathon and 100km. I am based in Midrand, South Africa, and I currently coach runners in South Africa, Australia, England, America, Netherlands, Namibia, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Isle of Man, Cayman Island and Canada.

Road &
Trail Training

I do online coaching for road and trail, using the Final Surge training app, which integrates training programmes, monitoring performance and communication.
This is backed up by whatsapp, email and Zoom.

Who is my training for?

Many of my runners are mid-field and back-of-the-pack runners seeking to complete their own goals, be it going from zero to finishing a 5km park run; or to tackling their first Skyrun or Comrades under the cut-off time, while 6 runners I have coached have represented South Africa at World Champs on road and trail. I coach runners in eight countries.
