Mark Wilkins – Running and Fitness

We are delighted to welcome Mark Wilkins, ever-present at the show since we began at Ashton Court in 2022. This year Mark will be leading a warm up session before the Filton 5 Funrun and will also be kicking off Coach’s Corner.

Mark enjoy’s bringing an informed approach to supporting groups and individuals in developing their running, general fitness and wellbeing. Good running form is essential for effective movement and reducing injuries. This led mark to spend a lot of time exploring cadence, a good stance, and developing strength.  Mark is particularly interested in using barefoot running practices to create a comfortable gait and this often involves exercises for building up strength.

During workshops and individual sessions he says “I carefully observe clients running and make suggestions for changes”. Hand in had with observations Mark believes self-motivation is a crucial element. He enjoy’s building up a personal relationship with clients and offering ideas for increasing their enjoyment of running.

Having raced for 40 years, a former racing cyclist, triathlete and martial artist, Mark was a teacher for many years. Eventually Mark realised he could use his professional training to share his passion.
