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 since 2016, 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 absolutely 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.
