About James

I started late. I first laced up my trainers at age of 38. My goals were to get fit and lose a bit of weight.
It turned out I loved running (and was quite good). A 10k became marathons, which became ultramarathons. Completing the Bob Graham Round, paced by my friends, is my happiest running memory - so far.
When I’m not running, I’m being a father to 3 growing kids, supporting my wife - herself an enthusiastic ultrarunner - and until recently, being a partner at a Big 4 accountancy firm.
Now I’m a full time coach, and I want to help you to transform your running.
