Show Notes

We welcome multidisciplinary distance runner and coach, Jeff Ross, to the @unlockingathleticpotential podcast this week.

Jeff originates from Scotland but has been living in Malaysia for the past 10 years. At high school, he participated in cross-country running and track athletics but found his passion in squash for most of his adulthood. In 2013, now in his late 30s, he returned to running and has made incredible progress across a broad range of distances and terrains. Now at 46 years young, today’s guest continues to excel on the road, trails and stairs and is a regular race winner in Malaysia, not just in the masters categories but against elite athletes in their prime. The achievement that brought Jeff arguably the most attention was his third place finish in the Gobi March Race in 2017. He also ran a 16:30 5km dressed as a banana!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The sporting moment that has brought him the greatest sense of happiness
  • His athletic journey and rediscovering running in 2013
  • Finishing third at the Gobi March in 2017
