Lawrence Harvey, co-author of Triple Jump Trailblazers and the Harvey-Benns Method

Lawrence Harvey, co-author of the best-selling book Triple Jump Trailblazers and the Harvey-Benns Method, is a businessman and former Masters World Champion (M35) in the Triple Jump.

Lawrence is passionate about his family, the military, business, and sport, together with a keen interest in those that have paved the way for what we are able to enjoy today – especially in athletics, for which he has personally supported many athletes over the years.

In business, Lawrence has worked in senior positions across a number of international organisations (Aldi, Barclays, PizzaExpress, and Tesco) and has launched multiple businesses (most notably, JACK’S) and founded a charity that supports unfunded talented British track & field athletes to fulfill their potential and realise their dreams.

Lawrence is especially proud of his father’s military service and boarded at The Duke of York’s Royal Military School for seven years, achieving Colour Sergeant in CCF (Combined Cadet Forces) and Head Pupil in his final year. Thereafter, Lawrence went on to study Business at Loughborough University (1999-2003).

Lawrence lives in Cambridgeshire and is happily married to his wife of 17 years, Jessie, and has interests in travel, film, live music, and many sports – primarily NFL (big Green Bay Packers fan), football (Liverpool FC), and of course, athletics!
