My name is Alan, I am an ultra runner, running coach, and race director of Running Monk Trail Events. My path to health, wellness and fitness has not been linear. I have had issues with alcohol addiction, mental health, and used drugs for long periods of my adult life. I have had period s of training interspersed with drug and alcohol binges. I have real life experience of many different pathways!

From an early age I was always a decent runner, and enjoyed it, and this love affair with running and fitness is ultimately what helped me get and stay sober, at the age of 38. Since then I’ve been focusing on trying to help others make positive changes in their life, using running as a tool to do that. I’m also a huge advocate for open and honest conversations as to how we feel, and as my clients know, I am always available to talk to, and see a direct link between physical and mental wellbeing.
