Our Story

Coach Kel Walker, the founder of My Run Team, had a natural talent for most sports growing up in Queensland, including rugby league, rugby union, cricket, tennis, golf, and squash.

In 2016, Kel completed the Athletics Australia Level 2 Recreational Running Coaches course and the beginnings of My Run Team were formed.

Throughout COVID-19, Kel's coaching started to increase, and by early 2022, he left his full-time job as a Sports Administrator to focus on coaching his clients, hoping to pass on his knowledge and skills to help them achieve their running goals.

In 2023, Kel successfully finished the Level 3 Performance Development Coaches program offered by Athletics Australia. He remains committed to ongoing education, consistently updating his knowledge on the most current training and racing practices for our athletes.

  • Complete their first endurance event (half and full marathon)

  • Achieve many PBs over various distances from 800m to the Marathon
