British Athletics have today announced that Rob Denmark has joined the British Athletics Endurance Programme as a National Institute Coach.
The former 5000m specialist will undertake a full-time coaching role based at the National Performance Institute in Loughborough.
The 1994 Commonwealth Games gold medallist will be working with Head of Endurance Barry Fudge, as well as liaising with the programme’s key advisors Steve Cram and Paula Radcliffe.
The British Athletics Endurance Programme is geared towards podium success at Olympic and world level and enables British coaches the chance to up-skill and develop alongside some of the world’s best coaching set-ups such as Nike’s Oregon Project with Alberto Salazar.
“I’m delighted to have been given this opportunity and it’s one that I’m really looking forward to,” said Denmark.
“This summer we have seen British athletes reaping the rewards of the British Athletics Endurance Programme which certainly bodes well for the next few years.”
Barry Fudge, Head of Endurance, said: “Coaching is a fundamental part of preparing athletes to compete at the highest level.
“I am confident Rob’s skill set will complement the vision of the endurance programme to produce athletes who stand on the start line and are the best prepared in the world.”
