British Triathlon Performance Development Coach - Stirling
Before taking up position in Stirling, Chris Volley was at the University of Bath – a job he took over from Richard Hobson in 2005. He’s from the Isle of Wight, but loves the lifestyle in Scotland.
He said: “I’m an Englishman in Scotland and I love the vibe up here. I’m very lucky to be working with a good group of youngsters. As a triathlete I raced at junior level – including in Cancun in 1995 with Tim Don and Stuart Hayes. I chased being an athlete for ten years, and raced in France for many years, but I realised I wasn’t going to make it and switched to coaching.
“My job involves a lot of desk work, but I get out on the bike with the athletes when they’re running, and I recently did a 10 hour mountain bike race in Fort William. I absolutely love it here, the landscape is awesome!”
