British Athletics has confirmed that Barry Fudge will leave his role as Head of Endurance at the end of June.

Fudge, who was appointed to the role in December 2013 has played a pivotal part in the organisation’s endurance strategy for more than 10 years and played a key role in supporting Mo Farah to his four Olympic titles.

Speaking of his decision to step down Fudge said:

“It’s a difficult time for the performance team and the sport as a whole but it has been great to see British Athletics use the opportunity to push on with recruiting the new Head Coach and Performance Director ahead of Tokyo 2021.

“The time is right for me to move on, and I am looking forward to watching our athletes progress and succeed at future championships.

“I’ve been proud to be a part of the organisation and support British coaches and their athletes to be the best they can be. I look forward to seeing the significant progress we have made being built on in the future.

“Having spent the last decade spending summers away from the family and in various training locations across the world, I’m looking forward to taking a break from that routine and working on some exciting new projects.”

Joanna Coates, CEO said: “We’d like to thank Barry for his work for the organisation over the years. The recruitment of the new Head Coach and Performance Director will now take the organisation in to a new era.”
