Nigel Gates Interview

Here at Run Valais we are very pleased to have one of the worlds best master athletes as part of our team. Nigel added another title to his collection this weekend when winning the British Masters Indoor M65 3000m title in a time of 10:26.83, over a minute faster than his nearest rival.

Last year runABC South reporter Alan Newman caught up with the former Masters world record holder, with whom he shares a year of birth, a degree of longevity and little else in terms of talent!

Here is a snippet of the interview which took place in 2019;

Alan: “Can you summarise what keeps you so motivated after such a long running career?”
Nigel: “For me running is powerful! To say I simply love it does not do justice to the exhilaration I feel when I run. It has also been and still is my personal means of self-expression and self-development.”
