Rob has been a keen runner and cyclist for many years and can most often be found running on the trails around Leighton and surrounding areas. His leadership style is to lead from the front, but his running abilities mean that he doesn’t always stay there long.
Dan has been with the club for 4 years and in this time has smashed all of his running targets and PB’s and is looking forward to his next challenge of being Club Captain.
Alice has not long since taken up running, but has already made a huge impression on the club and being passionate about LFR, jumped at the chance to take on the role of Vice Captain when the opportunity presented itself.
Neil has been a member of LFR for four years. When he joined, he struggled to run 5km, but now with the support of the club he has completed over 40 marathons and Ultras. His favorite type of challenge is anything that is mentally taxing, as well as physical. This can be anything from running marathons on treadmills and running tracks, to ultras over mountains.
Sandra started running a few years ago and has been with the club 3 years and is one of our keen run leaders
Carrie started running in April 2014 with Zombies Run! and in May the same year she ran her very first parkrun. By the end of that year she decided she didn’t like running solo, so joined the Leighton Fun Runners. Soon after she ran her first 10k and within a year of joining, completed two half marathons – a lot to be proud of. Without the club’s support she’d still be running with the Zombies so to give something back, you’ll also find Carrie at Rushmere parkrun most Saturday’s where she is a Race Director and core volunteer.
Chris has been at the club longer than anyone can remember and holds two Guinness World Records obtained at the VLM London.
Steve is an experienced runner, having been with LFR for 10 years but until now has never served on the committee due to working away.
Debbie joined LFR’s couch to 5k programme in January 2014 looking for a way to get a bit fitter and meet new people. After running her first 5k she was hooked and has since gone on to run a half marathon and will run her first marathon in April 2016. A passionate member of the club, she joined the committee in 2015.
Vicky is one of LFR’s most improved runners, through determination and hard work has made huge inroads into her running goals, and as Race Secretary will hopefully bring the same dedication to the club.
Jane joined the club in October 2012, as a couch-to-5k runner with the aim of wanting to run faster, further and with new friends. All of which she’s achieved; finding the club very supportive, friendly and a great help when she completed her first half marathon back in March 2013. In colder weather you’ll spot her running wearing her blue bobble hat.
Emma joined the club in 2010 after offering to support her sister in her quest to complete the VLM. Enjoying the team spirit, support and camaraderie she was hooked immediately. She completed her first marathon in Brighton 2011 and has continued to run many others.
Tracy joined the club in November 2016 and has a love/hate relationship with running but is always determined never to give in. Also a very keen swimmer along with her other passion as Run Director at Rushmere parkrun and has so far have completed over 160 parkruns
