A product of the Run Strong Coaching stable, Ash has trained under Julian for much of his running career. Starting out as a guy who specialized on the trails and in the mountains, he now spends most of his time on the road and track – with PB’s of 15 mins over the 5k and 31 mins for 10k.
In 2022 Ash ran 2:27 at the Gold Coast Marathon, shaving 3 mins from his previous best marathon time.
An Australian representative in 2018 at the World SkyRunning Championships, Ash has tasted podium success at many of Australia’s major trail races – The Bogong 2 Hotham, Ultra-Trail Australia, The Buffalo Stampede & Two Bays Ultra to name a few.
Ash has a great respect for the Run Strong training philosophy, a runner who openly admits he isn’t blessed with a whole lot of natural athletic talent & guilty of over-training when starting out, he has become a runner who prides himself on being disciplined & hard working, with a healthy respect of the importance for consistency and patience in getting the most out of yourself when it comes to running performance.
Outside of running, Ash is married, has a 1-year-old daughter, and is a university qualified Marketer living in Albury/Wodonga.
