Phil's Experience

As a UESCA certified ultra marathon coach, Phil brings a unique depth of knowledge and experience to his coaching practice. Unlike standard marathon coaching techniques, the UESCA certification is tailored specifically for ultra running. This specialised certification has equipped Phil with the tools required to guide athletes towards their ultra marathon goals effectively.

Phil is not just a coach, his own experiences as an ultra runner means he's faced both triumphs and disappointments, tested various pacing and nutrition strategies and raced in different formats and distances. This allows Phil to offer a relatable perspective to the physical and mental stamina necessary to succeed in the sport.

Beyond Phil's experience in running, his professional experience in Financial Services has provided him with transferrable skills that can benefit those that he coaches. Over the course of 15+ years, he's worked in leadership roles where he's managed and led individuals from all backgrounds. These transferable skills enable Phil to guide his clients towards and help them realise their full potential.
