Profile
Graham came to being a runner through his local parkrun event after a long career in semi-professional soccer and mountain biking. Since coming to Brendan, he has worked his way up from being a coached athlete to now having his Level 2 Coaching Certificate.

“I got into coaching as I really enjoy seeing someone reach a goal. For me I was able to help at least 5 people at parkrun hit PB’s and have helped other UP Coaching athletes develop their fitness and grow as athletes. I expect that my athletes do the training I set out but at the same time I am open to getting regular input from my athletes as coaching should be an adaptable process.

As a coach I want to develop my athletes and see them reach their potential and I will study and grow myself as a Coach along the way.”
