Thank you for visiting this website. After many years developing Benson's Running & Triathlon

into the largest running and triathlon business in Australia, coaching too many elite and age

group athletes to awards and personal best performances to list and transitioning tri/athlete

such as Andy Sleeman (Tribal), Ollie Allen (Tri-Alliance) and Sean Foster (Fluid Movements)

from athlete to coach I have now moved to new challenges. One thing from the past remains

- the love of helping committed people achieve results that seemed impossible when they

arrived at their first training session.
