Chris Taylor is well known to many club members, having placed regularly in our events and performing at a high level in the age graded categories. Chris started running 20 or more years ago and did lots of 10km and half marathons before getting brave enough, joining SARRC and entering his first marathon in 2006. He has now run 30 marathons across Australia as well as having done more than 30 half marathons. His personal bests of 1:15 in the half and 2:42 in the marathon were all set within the last 12 months. He has 10 years of experience as a qualified personal trainer and is a Level 2 Athletics Australia coach. Chris has trained a large number of people in recreational running for all distances up to a marathon. When he's not running, he's really lazy...
Testimonial from Angie Lewis
I've only known Chris for a few months, but in that time I've got to know him well. He is a very gifted and talented running coach who's helped me immensely with my running technique. I'm only able to run infrequently due to time restraints, work commitments and arthritic knees (among other joints!). Chris came for a run with me to see my running style and technique. He was incredibly patient and gently pointed out a few areas on which I could improve.
Chris has a great sense of humour and a sweet tooth! He is always willing to answer my running questions (of which I ask many and often!) and he gives his time freely and very willingly. It is clear Chris loves to help people of all abilities with their running, whether it to be improve a time, run faster, run further or set a new and challenging goal.
