Biography

S&C and Running Coach

Andy's endurance story started not so long ago! Back in 2015 he opened his first gym, and wanted to pay it forwards to the hospital that saved his sons life. He came up with the idea of running 7 marathons in 7 days barefoot style - raising £10,000 in the process. One year on he set out to try and run a sub 3 marathon in sandals which he did at the Bournemouth marathon festival, coming 37th.

Not long after racing a half marathon Andy picked up an injury that would stop him from running for 9 months - the dreaded Plantar Fasciitis. When he was able to start running again, his duathlon journey started...

Later that year Andy entered a few races and did well, enabling him to get selected for the GB age group team at the Middle Distance and Long Distance Championships, in Zofingen.

Fast forward 2 years and Andy wasn’t finished with raising money, and based on his experiences at the Middle and Long distance championships, he wondered whether doing multiple ultra duathlons was possible.

Around November 2019 Andy spoke with his coach and a few close friends to see whether it was possible to do 10 ultra duathlons from Morocco to Southampton. Crazy they said! At that point they started planning and training in the spring for what was to become the toughest challenge of Andy's life!

On the 20th October Andy ran into Hamble Southampton having completed a 22km run - 160km Bike - 22km run from Morocco back home!
