Running Science was started in 2016 by Dylan and Jonathan, who wanted to collaborate on their joint passion for working with runners and discussing training philosophies. They wanted to create a site and a brand that could be used as a platform for not only teaching runners about the how’s and why’s of training, but also as a way of initiating discussions and debates around thought-provoking running-related topics. The name Running Science combined the focus on running while also looking at things from a more general sports science perspective.
JONO is primarily a trail runner, who has been competing and coaching full-time for the past few years. However, he enjoys all varieties of running and has competed in everything from 800m to road marathons to ultra-trail races; with countless podium placings along the way over all distances and terrains.
His coaching philosophy is based on creating a well-rounded athlete and building consistent, continuous improvement over a long period of time. Part of this is ensuring that despite being challenging, training must always remain enjoyable and mentally stimulating. Another key aspect of his training is communication, to ensure that an athlete can approach training with the right mentality and a good understanding of the purpose behind every run.
DYLAN has a 5 year background in sport science and has worked with athletes, coaches and sports scientists across the board. He has dedicated an immense portion of his time studying the sport to understand that training is neither a science or an art, but both. He emphasises approaching training holistically, instilling confidence in an athlete as well as ensuring that there is maintainable long term growth.
In his own capacity Dylan has run at a national championship level and has medalled at a senior provincial level.
