Australian Representative Marathoner
Australian 30km Record Holder & 20 Years of Experience
One of the few athletes to represent Australia in a World Championship Marathon,
Josh is living proof that with consistent training you can reach a level you never thought was possible.
Josh started his running journey in 2000 after being inspired by the Sydney Olympics, and is
still running the same Tasmanian roads 20 years later. With a gradual progression of training
he continued to improve each year. Josh first gained Australian selection in 2012, and again
in 2015 at the World University Games, but it was the step up to the Marathon in 2015
where he had his biggest success.
Josh’s Marathon journey saw him break the Australian record over 30000m on the track,
and resulted in qualification for the 2017 World Championships with a PB of 2:17 in Japan.
Unfortunately during the 2017 World Championships he suffered a broken ankle, causing a
major setback to his running career. He could not run for over a year and is just starting to
get close to his PBs.
Josh not only has years of running experience behind him, but has a university degree in
Exercise Science and Teaching to add to his knowledge. On top of this Josh developed
additional sporting experience during his injury setback. He focused temporarily on Road
Cycling where he has raced at an International level in 2019. With this broad skillset he is
able to give many levels of guidance to athletes depending on their needs and interests.
