Why Lawley Running Club?  Come and try us out and you will answer this question yourself

How long have I been running?  I’ve been running for a little over 2 years, starting off with the Couch to 5K.

Why did I start running ? I used to sit on the couch each year on a September Sunday morning, watching the Great North Run.  For ten years I would sit there and say one day I’ll do that run.  And I did, in my 40th Year and I will return to Newcastle and complete it again soon.

Most Iconic Event to date: There have been two, the Great North Run is a very special event.  The London Landmarks Half Marathon in March 2018 goes down as one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Greatest Running Achievement: Completing my first Marathon in Edinburgh in May 2018, the feeling of accomplishment overwhelms you, a tear was shed on that day.

Why become a run leader?  I am absolutly certain that without the support and help of the run leaders I would not be running today, the help I received from the leaders was invaluable and to use the old cliché I wanted to put something back into the club.  There is no better feeling on a club run  when people finish the run your leading feeling like it has helped them.
