Meet Our Coach

Dion Finocchario

Dion is not only our massage therapist, he’s also our in-house Run Coach and Head Coach at Evolve Run Club

Dion started running in 2011 as a way to improve his health after living an unhealthy lifestyle as a chef. Little did he know, it wouldn’t take long to get hooked. Dion entered fun runs, which started at 6.7km and increased in distance as a means to challenge himself. It didn’t take long before he completed his first marathon in Melbourne, 2012.

From there, Dion has gone through the recreational running scene in trail running, ultra marathons, track races and the roads to become a highly competitive athlete. Dion has trained with some of the best athletes and coaches Australia has to offer.

Dion has won multiple Australian titles and owns several Australian records. He has represented Australia at the 100km World Championships multiple times. He has now run more than an astonishing 70 marathons and ultramarathons and is a HOKA sponsored athlete.

What Dion really loves about coaching is guiding his athletes to fitness and success through running. Dion is known for investing in his athletes daily lives and riding the waves that running brings.

Outside of running, Dion likes catching up with friends, listening to music and podcasts, watching the Collingwood Magpies play in the AFL and being active outdoors.
