Having rediscovered the 'Running Bug' in autumn of 2007, I Joined East London Runners the following summer as I trained for the 2009 London Marathon. I enjoy competitive road running, entering all sorts of events throughout the year. Since 2007 I have competed in races of all distances from 5km to Marathons, and with the support of my fellow East London Runners, I have found my times get continually better year on year!
Even though being a slightly more competitive runner, I love how social and friendly East London Runners are, and the fact that the club is open to people of all abilities, no matter what your goal. The Club has been a great source of support to me as I trained for my races, and I have made many new friends throughout the years I have been a member.
Joint Club Runner of the Month - April 2018
Ciaran, having overcome recent illness and with little preparation, Ciaran competed in the Boston Marathon on 16th April. After enduring head winds of over 40 MPH and torrential downpours of rain throughout, he finished the race in a time of 3.11.54. Ciaran has produced many outstanding performances during his 10+ years with the club; from marathon distance down to 5k. He is an inspiration to everyone and always happy to give advise to others. Although he admits to being a competitive road runner, Ciaran says he enjoys the social side to East London Runners joining in with the various events and activities. Ciaran has worked tirelessly on the committee for a number of years and holds the role of ELR race volunteer coordinator.
