My name is Mark Hurst founder of MadRunners based in St. Helens. I’m an England Athletics trained Coach and Leader in running fitness. I’m also a Run Leader Mentor and Mental Health Champion. I’ve always played sports mainly rugby league until I decided to start running, in 2010 when I completed my first 5k. A couple of years later in 2013 I became a Run Leader and started a running club meeting once a week. This has grown with success I’m now a Coach and also carry out other roles, one being a Run Leader Mentor to pass on my experience. Running has become a big part of my family’s life.
