Government guidance on running training means that I am able to continue 1-2-1 coaching. The only restriction is that I can only coach one person per day. Message me for further details and availability.
The PB Coach community continues to train following government guidance and rules. With many races cancelled there are some green shoots of hope. We continue to grow as a community despite the difficult training conditions in this current restrictive climate.

My name is Brian Stopher and I am a UK Athletics qualified running coach, former national athlete and secondary Head of PE, with running and coaching experience spanning 4 decades.
From running my first cross country race at secondary school, to experiencing that euphoric winning feeling for the first time, to that horrible realisation of picking up an injury, I have always enjoyed the highs and lows that running can give. My passion is being able to find ways of making people fitter and stronger to enable them, through my own experiences, to be their best and beat their best.
I started running in my early teens and quickly established myself as a national level athlete over track, cross country and road. I also began my coaching journey at college and became a qualified PE teacher soon after. My teaching career spans 17 years and have had many talented school, county and international athletes under my tutelage.
Coaching people to become better athletes and the joy and satisfaction it brings to both athlete and coach is right at the heart of the PB Coach philosophy. Running can bring so much enjoyment, especially through hard work, and it is those key components that make a successful partnership. Work hard with a smile on your face and who knows where that may take you. Let me help you on your journey.
A team environment in an individual sport. PB Coach's aim is to create that unique experience of quality coaching, a supportive, interactive and inclusive environment for runners of all abilities.
