I joined East London Runners in 2018, became a member of the committee in 2020, and was elected chair in 2021. As the new chair, I work closely with the committee to ensure the smooth running of the club, and will be looking for ways for the club to continue to innovate and provide benefits to all our members, whether competitive athletes, casual runners or complete beginners.

Media Officer & Newsletter Editor
Tricia O'Neill


I joined East London Runners (ELR) in 1991 and have been a member ever since. I was humbled to learn, some years ago, that I had been awarded life membership for commitment and dedication to our great club. I have watched ELR grow over the years into what it is today; an all-inclusive, friendly, supportive and competitive running club. I enjoy being part of the committee and look forward to promoting the achievements of 2021.

Assistant Media Officer

I was a member of ELR in the 90s, took a break when my sons were born and am now back. As they say, you can take the runner out of ELR but you can't take ELR out of the runner! I will do my best to help the club continue to be a fun club where runners of all abilities from the very best to the complete beginner can enjoy running together.

As a club we help support a number of events throughout the year. As volunteer coordinator, I manage ELRs volunteer commitments, arranging teams to support these events. After all, our hobby often relies on volunteers to happen!

Caroline Frith



Assistant Volunteer Coordinator & Athlete Liaison
Caroline Frith


I have been a runner for over 20 years but only joined ELR in 2017. I quickly realised how much more fun it is to run with friends - especially when you're running to the pub! The club has given me so much joy that it seemed a natural progression to join the committee and hopefully help others to reap the benefits of belonging to east London's top running club.

Susannah McLaren



Assistant Volunteer Coordinator
Susannah McLaren


I joined ELR in 2011 having gained a place in the London marathon. I needed motivation for those long training runs! 10 years later I'm happy to still be part of such an inclusive and friendly club.

The team spirit at races and support from marshals made me want to give something back so volunteering to help out at future events seemed the natural thing to do.
