Mark van Niekerk is a South African born running, environmental and sport enthusiast. After an exhaustive search to combine his passions and to be provided with an opportunity to work with people meaningfully, he was delighted to discover the Go! Running franchise, a brand that represents these wishes and which has been established on solid principles. Go! Running Lyon was born shortly thereafter!
Mark has had a diverse career stretching the past 15 years. He has a Masters degree in Biology and has previously worked in Southern Africa as a professional safari guide, lodge manager and renewable energy project manager. He moved to France in 2014 and now lectures part-time at two universities in France. Mark has been guiding groups since 1998, though most of this has been in wildlife destinations, he has been a run leader for Celtics and Sedgefield Striders Running Clubs in South Africa for several years.
He has a natural aptitude for working with people and is competent at sharing his love of French culture and the area with you. He believes that not having been born in Lyon has provided him with an opportunity to see the city ‘through the eyes of a tourist’ and in so doing, discover the hidden secrets of the city.
Mark is a very experienced and competent athlete, who has participated in numerous ultra-marathon, marathon and trail running races. He would be delighted to share his experiences with you or provide advice.
