Meet Your Run Leader
Hi, my name is Dave Feasey of South London Striders.I am a Leader in Running Fitness. I am an experienced runner at all long distances: 5km, 10km, Half Marathon, Full Marathon and Ultra Marathon races. I love running and want to help you experience the joy that it can bring. I am also a physiotherapist working in the NHS and semi-professional football. I qualified in physiotherapy in 2022, having previously had a long career in teaching. My last position was as Head Teacher of St Thomas of Canterbury School, Mitcham. I know and love the area very well.
I hope you will join me on this exciting journey!
