Rob Asher

I joined Blackrock AC in 2016 and took on the role of Men’s Captain in 2020. My role is to ensure the smooth running of the men’s adult (Senior and Masters) section, working closely with other sections of the club. This includes making sure we have the right coaching structures in place, deciding which races and events we target and putting training plans together for our Tuesday evening workouts and Sunday morning long runs. I also register new members of the club and advise them which group they should run with. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are interested in trying out a session or have any questions.
I’ve been a runner for over a decade, covering distances from 5 to 50k. I’m predominantly a road runner but I love trail and mountain running too when I get the chance. I am also a very regular participant and volunteer at Parkrun, especially where I live in Cabinteely.
