"It was a great honour to be voted as Chair and an even greater privilege to be Saltwell’s first ever female chair in our 130 year history.

"We cannot deny we are living in very strange times at the moment so it is more important than ever that we all work together for the good of our club and our fellow members and look out for one another.

"I have lots of ideas of how to take the club forward, whilst maintaining its core values. I always welcome new ideas so please do come forward to chat to me at any point."

I have been a member of Saltwell Harrier since 2004, being involved with the committee in various roles from Ladies Captain to Vice Chair, since 2008. I qualified as a LIRF in 2008, being instrumental in setting up a beginners group in 2010 – one of my most proudest achievements within the club. I currently cover groups three, four and five – helping the group coaches.

Ladies' Captain

Joined Saltwell Harriers in 2013 to become a better runner. Loves nothing more than representing the club with pride. After having ran 5 marathons, favourite distance has to be a half marathon although I do love a 10km.

"You finish a race hating it, do it again to make sure you really do!”
