Luke Gunn

Head of Athletics

Luke was a GB International runner on the track, cross-country and road during a junior and senior career that spanned 2 decades. Highlights include 4 National Senior UK Titles at the 3,000m Steeplechase and 3 Commonwealth Games finals.


Luke captained the University of Birmingham Athletics Club as an undergraduate and later studied at the Florida State University on a sports scholarship, where he was once again elected a team captain, which won the NCAA team track championship.

From 2010, Luke began coaching alongside his own running and has since coached an array of athletes from 800m-Marathon distances, collecting no fewer than 5 BUCS Individual Gold medals and numerous age-group national medals and GB internationals. Previously, Luke has held the roles of Sports Scholarship Manager at the University of Birmingham and University Athletic Coordinator for England Athletics.

As a coach Luke has a keen eye for technical running development, coupled with a passion for the transitional student-athlete development from promising juniors through to successful senior athletes.
