Caroline2

Caroline Mann

Caroline took up running in 2014 and ran a marathon that year after training on her own. After a fair bit of on and off running in between she joined LFR in winter 2017 and enjoys trying all the sessions on offer when she can. Caroline enjoys the challenge of half marathons mostly as it requires keeping a reasonable level of fitness but doesn’t take too much time up with training. Caroline loves the social aspect of running with the club, has made some good friends and is keen to give something back and help support the running of the club. You’ll quite often find her at her local parkrun of Rushmere too.

Max joined LFR about 10 years ago and has previously been the secretary for the club. She was the first LFR female to run 100 marathons, and as if that wasn’t enough has also run the London to Brighton 100k. She is in her element when she is running off road with her dog Holly as she loves it as much as Max does. She likes the social side of running and whilst she may not be the fastest runner, she enjoys it immensely.
