First Half Marathon for Head Coach James

Head Coach James McIntosh competed in his first half marathon at the weekend, the Vitality Oxford Half Marathon on behalf of Heart FM Global’s Make Some Noise charity.

McIntosh was signed up for the event by his wife Charlotte after she heard an advert on the radio leaving him only three weeks notice before the race in Oxford on Sunday. With his busy tennis coaching schedule and late notice McIntosh only trained for two weeks prior to the race but still managed an impressive official race time of 1:30:20.
McIntosh said, “I really enjoyed taking part in the Oxford Half Marathon and was pleased with the time I did it in. The biggest challenge was to keep going just after the 11 mile mark as that’s when my body started to tire.” he added “I will definitely look to do another half marathon and see if I can improve on my time.
