About Ian

One way or another, I have been running all of my life, from primary school cross country to big journeys in the mountains.
This lead me into a career in the outdoors. First this was as a climber and mountaineer. Working as an instructor since 2006 this has taken me to some really cool places across the world and into some pretty extreme environments. Throughout this time running was what I did to keep fit, and to explore my local mountains. In 2017 I founded Trail Running Scotland to fuse the two worlds together. Coaching runners of all abilities in all environments,

Coaching Philosophy

The best programme for you is one that works with your life. No two programmes are ever the same, as no two runners are the same. I believe in building strong foundations of fitness and strength. I always take time to understand your goal in all of it's facets to build a comprehensive approach. The distance, terrain and elevation are just the start.
