Alan Thomas

I began coaching athletes in 2000 having enjoyed participating and watching most sports throughout my life. By 2006 I qualified as a Level 3 Middle Distance Performance Coach and in 2013, as a result of coaching one of my athletes to a GB Cross Country vest, I was awarded a place on UK Athletics National Coach Mentoring Scheme.

I coach athletes of both genders in age groups U13 to U20 who compete in 800, 1500 and 3K events on the track and cross country during the winter. Over the years I have been fortunate to work with some wonderful young athletes who have gained County, Regional and National honours and have gone on to compete whilst at University and beyond.

I thoroughly enjoy planning the athletes training sessions and race programmes and watching them develop to run faster than they believed possible when they first started to train.

In addition to coaching athletes I also mentor other coaches and have presented at coaching conferences.

I have met some wonderful people as a result of coaching and look forward to further developing my coaching skills and those of the athletes that I coach.
