Scott got into running after playing rugby for many years and it has developed into a true passion. He particularly enjoys thinking about how to optimise training and has applied his learnings to go from a debut marathon time of 3:54 to a current PB of 2:41 at the 2019 Tokyo Marathon. He has run numerous marathons in Japan and has great knowledge of the culture and racing there.
Scott now finds it rewarding to share what he has learnt from experimenting with his own running to help others achieve their goals. He has coached runners with a broad range of abilities from 2:25 for the marathon through to first timers, as well as runners that just want to improve their parkrun PB. He believes the foundations of good performance are remaining injury free, building a strong aerobic base, and progressing the training so you peak on race day.
Outside of running Scott is the co-founder of a boutique economics consultancy and has a family with two young kids. This means he fully appreciates the challenges of balancing real life demands with achieving running goals.
