About me: I was fairly sporty at school and selected for short distance and relay teams but didn’t fully embrace it, despite being in a local Athletics Club, I spent most of my time sat on the side-lines chatting.  I didn’t think I could run as fast or as far as my peers and although I enjoyed running, I was lacking in self-belief.  This changed once I joined STAC and I had the training and support to progress from 5k’s to 10’ks and beyond..  Long distance is now my preference, I’ve competed in 4 Marathon’s and countless half’s (13.2 is my fave distance)…  I enjoy building up my miles in training and use my solo runs to unwind from life’s going-on…

About me:  I got into running about 5 years ago, I blame Terry Midgley for it. I soon joined St Theresa’s which was a much smaller club then it is now but a great bunch of guys who made me feel very welcome. Terry took me on my first run of about 3 miles and I won’t lie it almost finished me off. A tale he still talks of to this day. Now my fav distance is the marathon and I have completed 12 so far in the last 3 years. Best tip I can give is enjoy it and don’t get caught up in chasing a pb all the time.

About me: 
My sporting history is as a junior athlete for Middlesbrough and Cleveland Harriers. I was quite successful at 100m, 200m & Long jump but I think 400m would have been my best event. However, I drifted away from athletics when I came to University in Leeds. I somehow did the Leeds half marathon in 2001 but I didn’t run regularly until just before Temple Newsam parkrun started. I fell in love with parkrun and all the great people involved. I joined St Theresa’s soon after to keep motivated to get fitter for parkrun! I’m amazed to have since completed road and trail marathons, fell races, an ultra (never thought as a 100m sprinter I’d do anything like that) and have loved every minute of being a member of STAC.
