I am excited to be blending my race experiences alongside my honours degree in Physical Education to offer coaching services to endurance athletes of all shapes and sizes. I specialise in multisport and adventure racing athletes with busy lifestyles where the challenge becomes fitting effective training sessions around other life commitments. I believe anyone can achieve their race goals with the right approach and a well planned and structured training program.
My many amazing race experiences from various corners of the world have given me plenty of good stories to share. Racing past tarantulas in Brazil, through the Rocky Mountains of Canada, across the Empty Quarter near Abu Dhabi and amongst isolated high mountain villages in China, I have been lucky to compete in an empowering sport. Much of the challenges and rewards I have experienced in my racing career create wonderful and meaningful analogies to life in general. My aim with public speaking opportunities is to share the weird, crazy and most memorable experiences my sport has given me and explain the way these experiences have made my life richer. In this way I hope to inspire my audience to seek their own moments of empowerment, by challenging themselves further through adventure, risk and discovery.
Dougal Allan has established himself as a top international multisporter, and last year showed that he can also podium in the pro field in the Ironman domain. He has managed to do this whilst also working and mentoring other young athletes around him. I’ve had the pleasure of helping Dougal with his training and can not say enough about his physical abilities, work ethic, and strength of character
Sponsors like winners, but winning in an ethical and admirable way is important. Dougal’s career wins have been won with respect and much celebration by his many supporters
I have known Dougal Allan for over the past 12 years. It didn’t take us long to realize that there was something special about Dougal. Not just his sporting ability but his people skills. Dougal is a dream ambassador for your brand. Dougal is always thinking what he can do for the sponsor. It’s very refreshing to have a sponsored athlete thinking about putting on Talks, Training clients, how he can get your brand into the media. Thank you Dougal for being a great sponsored athlete you truly are one of the best.
