Specialisms:Seniors Juniors Endurance
Philip started running at Aberdeen and later Sussex universities. He has been a coach at OCAC since 2013, having previously coached at Binningen Leichtathletic Club, Basel. As a senior Philip’s PBs ranged from 8:32 (3000M) to 2:24 (marathon) – times he attributes to the good fortune of training with a large group of middle distance athletes in Brighton whilst studying for a PhD at Sussex university. Philip’s coaching focusses on building an endurance base, speed endurance (running faster and slower than race pace) and circuit or resistance training aimed at increasing leg strength and whole body agility.
