Chris’s latest endeavors have been to challenge himself over the greatest distance of them all – the marathon. He debuted in his first marathon in 2014 running a time of 2h 11mins and finishing 11th overall. This experience left him hungry for more. He set out to run even faster with my eyes on the British record but suffered a slight set back with an achillies surgery that the team headed by Mark Buckingham rehabilitated him back from and now he is gunning towards the best marathon shape of his life.
Talking is something he does best, often featured on BBC Radio 5Live commentating on various sporting events, his ability to talk for an extended period is almost as good as his ability to run for an extended period! Chris would love to share his experiences with others looking to pursue their passions. “One thing I do know is that you can’t do this alone, having the best team and best environment to train in is crucial for success no matter what your level of competition.” Challenging your body to its limits requires care and attention and the most successful sports people will attribute their success to the team around them.
