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, Ash has recently turned to the road and track to take his running to the next level – where he has slashed over 2 minutes from his 10,000m PB (31.13) and 1 minute from his 5k PB (15.18) in the past 12 months.
In 2021 Ash ran 2:30 to finish 3rd at the Hobart Marathon.
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 to running beauty, Kelli, is a University qualified Marketer & works as a Brand Manager in Albury.
