If you’d told me 4 years ago I’d now be a member of South Cheshire Harriers, an ACTUAL running club I would’ve laughed (very loudly)… Why? Well because I thought running clubs were full of really, really fast runners and somebody like me wouldn’t fit in… How wrong was I!

I’d originally ‘found’ running to help manage my mental health – Prior to this I’d never run in my life! After being introduced to Parkrun I bumped into an ex-colleague and member of #teamsch who suggested I give SCH a try.

So, I decided to give it a go, what did I have to lose?

And, I’m so, so glad I did….

Not only has my fitness improved, I’ve grown a social network of lovely, friendly faces, making some true friends along the way (and who I’ve shared social runs with outside of club, both in the UK and abroad… think Parkrun tourism).

I’ve now run a marathon, have a fair few half marathons under my belt and loads of medals & race T-Shirts which I am hugely proud of… and why not, I earned them.

I draw many positives from being a member and honestly I never realised what a huge influence it would have on my day to day life. The truth is runners are an extremely friendly and welcoming bunch of individuals, who come in all shapes, sizes and speeds… no judgements, just a common interest that brings us all together and that, quite frankly is just a great thing to be part of.

Since my first school cross-country experience I’ve been hooked on running and with someone else doing my washing I enjoyed lots of muddy races and orienteering. Spinal surgery and university then got in the way of my early running career until I moved to the area and joined the Harriers in 2009.

I loved the sense of community, particularly at races, so it wasn’t long before I was persuaded to try my first marathon – a respectable 4:48! Long and slow seemed to suit me, so I did my first ultra in 2010, coming 3rd solo female in TR24 with 75 miles.

Throwing 2 children into the mix I had to train smarter…. In March 2012 I was last in a fell race but by November, thanks to help from the club I had run a qualifying time for London Marathon.

I also had an idea… the Bob Graham Round – a fell running challenge in the Lake District, 42 Lakeland Fells, 66 miles and 27,000 feet of elevation in less than 24 hours. In summer 2015, to celebrate my 30th birthday I tackled this with a support team consisting mostly of club mates and became the first (and to date the only) female Harrier to join the Bob Graham Club, my proudest achievement.

Since then I have followed structured training plans, racing distances from 5k to 105 miles. I’ve had the honour of representing Cheshire in the inter-county fell championships, and have qualified for the Championship start of the London marathon.

I love setting and working towards a target, and in my role as head coach, I look forward to helping you motivate and challenge yourselves to improve and achieve your personal goals.

I’ve been running now for about 6 years, and it is a huge part of my life. I first started when a friend persuaded me to join her in a 10k race after never running in my life before. I enjoyed the atmosphere so much, I’ve never looked back!

Joining South Cheshire Harriers is one of the best things I’ve ever done, and it has changed my life for the better. I joined at a difficult time in my life, and the club (and running) truly kept me going.

Since joining South Cheshire Harriers, I have met so many amazingly inspiring and dedicated people, who I am now proud to call friends. I have also achieved so many things I never thought possible, including running countless half marathons and over 60 parkruns around the world.

In addition to this, I have learnt a lot about running, and as a result, my training and fitness has improved vastly since joining the club.

I’m now even training for a marathon – who’d have thought it?!

In my role as Communications Officer, I will be helping to get the word out about South Cheshire Harriers, and also managing the internal club communications, including the website and social media pages.

I’m really excited to be part of the South Cheshire Harriers committee, and looking forward to seeing where we can take the club over the upcoming months.

Please check out our social media pages, and give us a follow!

I have to say I’m still a bit of a novice when it comes to running, I properly took it up two and a half years ago after Alice persuaded me to put my running shoes on, since then I’ve never looked back!

I’m a bit Parkrun obsessive, will happily book a weekend away around it and also drive 2 hours to tick off a new location. I also joined the club during lockdown at the start of 2021.

Outside of running, I love travelling and visiting new places. I follow Liverpool home & away and also when I can I’ll go and watch The Alex, slowly ticking off the 92 grounds.

Excited to be part of SCH officer team and supporting where I can!

When I started my running journey after having my daughter Eva, I never thought it would lead to where I am today.

I have now been running for over 5 years (4 years with the club) and am really enjoying being part of our running family.

A lot of my spare time is now taken up with running activities. Club runs, Parkrun (Senior and Junior) and racing all over the local areas too.

Outside of running, I love my garden, Music ( the noisier the better), being part of GoodGym Crewe and spending time with team Kivlin.

Super excited about being part of the SCH officer team!
