Tom Williams

Tom set up Woodhouse Moor parkrun in 2007 whilst working as a Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Science at the University of Leeds. He now oversees parkrun’s global operations across all 22 countries and 1,000+ events.

Although not particularly sporty at school, and particularly drinky at University, Tom found endurance sport in his late twenties and has now completed 20+ marathons (PB 2:49), seven Iron-distance triathlons (PB 9:24) and, with Martin, the Comrades Ultra.
