Running has long been a part of Thomas’ life – and nothing has changed since joining TeamThie after moving from Loughborough to Cardiff Met for University! He has run competitively since 2007 in primary school cross country and track competitions, Thomas joined Charnwood AC in 2012 where he achieved his best English Schools Cross Country position of 10th in 2016. This followed 12th at the English Nationals cross country Championships in 2013 and 12th at the Virgin London Mini Marathon in 2015.
As an age-grade record holder at the Jamaica Pond Parkrun in Boston (US), Thomas achieved a highly successful first season under the tutelage of James Thie including 14th in the BUCS Short Course cross country Championships and 13th at the English Nationals cross country Championships. The summer season followed in a similar fashion with new PBs of 3:56 in the 1500m, 8:32 in the 3000m and 14:52 for the 5000m. His highlight of the 2019 summer season was a 3rd place in the British Road Mile Championships at the Westminster Mile. 2020 has continued from where 2019 finished with a new road 10km PB of 30:37. Thomas is looking forwards to progressing further in his athletics career with James and the training group over the next few years.
