In 1993 he won the Australian National Junior Duathlon Championships before shifting into the elite senior ranks and focusing on Long Course Triathlon racing.


After gaining a Professional Triathlon racing licence in 1999 and competing in several Ironman Events worldwide, including twice at the Kona World Ironman Championships, Sam turned his focus towards coaching in endurance sports. For the past two decades Sam has been coaching in both the running and triathlon industry utilising his academic study, personal experience and exposure to various sports in this time.

 Meet your Coaches:

Cassidy Shaw

Cassidy grew up running from a very young age. He was running at a national level from age 10. His mum (Susan Hobson) who is a 3 time olympian in Distance running, always encouraged Cassidy to enjoy all the aspects that running brings.


From age 10 to 18, Cassidy ran both track and field and cross country at an elite level, being a junior national medalist in the 1500 and representing Australia at the World Schools cross country championships in 2016. He has an understanding of what it takes to achieve the goals you set yourself. 


As well as running, Cassidy has been a professional triathlete for the last 4 years. Travelling and racing around the world, competing in multiple world class races. With this comes a knowledge of the kind of cross training that can be incorporated into a program to make you a stronger athlete. He has been lucky enough to work with and under some of the best athletes and coaches in the sport, being guided by Craig Mottram for many years. With this Cassidy has also worked as a coach at a school level in Melbourne. In both Athletics and cross country, not only allowing kids to experience the sport, but also enjoy it along the way. 


Cassidy holds 3 key philosophies when

it comes to training:

1. You always have to have fun with it,

hard work is made easier when you love it. 

2. Consistency is the most important factor

to achieving the results you are after.

3. Patience is your best friend,

Goals worth achieving do not happen overnight.

Online personalised running specific 

training programs to improve your Triathlon PB’s  

How do our run specific programs work?

When prescribing an athletes run program to improve their run leg in Triathlon events, our experienced coaches will carefully take into account your swim and bike training, and how this is impacting on your running development and race day performance. We will identify what changes need to be made with your current training, and implement a run specific program based on this.

What’s our coaching approach?

Our coaching philosophy is to ensure you are gaining the best outcomes from your run training, whilst still complementing your swim and bike training. We coach you as a Triathlete, not a runner. Our coaches understand all the disciplines of Triathlon, not just running. We will tell you when to run, how much to run and what pace. 

Short Course- Long Course - Ironman - Duathlons

How long does the program go for?

We encourage Triathletes to commit to 12 weeks for our Run Specific programs for those with 70.3 race goals, and 16 weeks for athletes training for IM races. We also offer ongoing programs for athletes with numerous race goals across the Triathlon season.
