Powerof10 Profile



Commonwealth Games Nomination Standard in the 10,000m (28:23.50)


If I am selected to represent Team Wales, it would be a huge honour and a highlight of my athletic career. With the games taking place in Birmingham, I'm sure it will be like running in front of a home crowd. 


Alongside running the nomination standard in the 10,000m, Kris also competes at an international level in orienteering. Working as a Research Engineer in Scotland, Kris grew up in Swansea and attended Olchfa Secondary school. He credits Mark Saunders and Alice Bedwell for coaching him as a junior.
