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.
Matt has been running with LFR for a few years now and regularly helps with leading runs and our improvers sessions on Thursday nights
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.
Jennifer started running in 2015 completing her first marathon the following year. She joined LFR in February 2017 after struggling with running on her own. She was looking for support and found this within LFR. The club is helping her achieve her training goals in preparation for her second marathon. Jennifer loves being part of LFR and is eager to support the club further within the committee.
Lindsey joined the club about 4 years ago and has steadily improved as a runner since then and last year took part in her first marathon
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.
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
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.
Nic has been running with LFR for many years now and is a keen club run-leader but in addition will be helping with the maintenance and updating of the clubs IT systems.
