Nick is a running endurance coach who also specialises in personal and team “peak performance”. Following a series of articles written on sports psychology, he was invited to Iten, high up in the rift valleys of Kenya, and home to many of the world’s greatest distance runners. Here, he immersed himself with the greats of running and their coaches.

Nick now mentors five athletes in Kenya and returns in late April.

Listen to his story, one of aspiration, inspiration, and humility.
