Hi. My name is Sam. I'm the lead coach and founder of Hawkinge Hurricanes Running Club. Although Hawkinge Hurricanes was founded in 2016 my team and I have many years of coaching experience.
I got into running in the spring of 2011 and just 20 weeks later crossed the finish line of my first Half Marathon, hand in hand with a friend.
I joined a running club, met new people, competed in all sorts of races from 5K to 100K - that was hard going! I have of course collected all the bling along the way too.
I qualified as a UK Athletics Leader in Running Fitness in 2012 and have supported a varied group of athletes since then. Hawkinge Hurricanes aim to cater for all abilities of athletes in an inclusive environment. We have beginners courses to help you from the couch to 5K all the way up to Ultra Marathon distance.
I qualified as a UK Athletics Coaching in Running Fitness this year and this has really given me an opportunity to provide appropriate and specific running goals for individual athletes as well as a structured training plan to our club sessions.
At Hawkinge Hurricanes we aim to provide a social, relaxed and fun environment to support all athletes to their full potential - this often includes cake, curry and alcohol.
