Neil Scholes

Having run my first marathon over 30 years ago and having completed my first triathlon over 20 years ago I have some longevity in endurance sport. However realising early on I was never going to be a superstar and coming from a family of coaches I turned my real passion to helping athletes reach their own goals and have been doing so since the 1990s.  In recent years I have worked with Runners, from those looking to complete their first 5k through to Elites, and Triathletes, from those looking to finish their first ever sprint event, through Age Group medalists at World Championships, Ironman Age Group winners and the Elite Squad at University of Bath.

My particular drive is to improve efficiency in endurance athletes.  To that end I work to combine my understanding of high level coaching and racing in order to stay ahead of the competition utilising up to date and evidence based training techniques that will be beneficial to all levels of athlete that I work with.

I still like to race to this day and in my time I’ve competed at all levels of multisport from 5k to ultra marathon, completing the Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa in both directions, and from sprint triathlon to Ironman, representing Great Britain at Age Group level on a number of occasions along the way. Such ongoing involvement is of vital importance to me, so as to constantly understand what it takes and what we all have to go come race day.
