Conor is the perfect coach for distance running. He draws on his personal experiences and appreciates the concerns and difficulties that his students encounter. He is patient and extremely encouraging, regardless of your age or ability. I have run with Conor at several events and he is always willing to give valuable on the spot coaching and feedback. I highly recommend Conor as a coach if you are looking to improve your distance running.

This amazing athlete and coach has helped me obtain and smash multiple personal bests over different distances. I definitely would not have been able to do it without his constant support throughout training sessions and time trials. Definitely worth every penny spent on coaching!
