I joined East London Runners in May 1994 and became a committee member shortly after. I then became membership secretary followed by club secretary; a role I have held since 2005.
I helped out at the ELR water station at the 1995 and 1996 London Marathon's which made me decide to run my first London Marathon in 1997. My aim is to run as many different road marathons as I can. I have now completed 29 marathons including 18 London Marathons.
The club provides a platform for those who either wish to run on a social basis, or participate competitively in races. I particularly enjoy welcoming and encouraging the new members in the club.
My PB records are as follows:
5KM. 19:22 (Barking 1996)
5 Miles. 33:08 (Springfield Striders 2012)
10KM. 40:12 (Hatfield Broad Oak)
10 Miles. 1:04:34 (Great Baddow 2000)
Half Marathon. 1:26:27. (Dartford 2000)
15 Miles. 1:48:20. (Benfleet 1997)
20 Miles. 2:18:10 (Essex County AAA 1999)
Marathon. 3:06:42 (Dublin 2001)
