I’m Kerry – Communications Officer for Knaresborough Striders.

I joined Striders in July 2021 – less than a week after moving to Knaresborough and haven’t looked back. I am an avid parkrunner and find my running joy out on the trails, but I do like to test myself on a good road race now and then too – just don’t ask me to run a marathon! Moving to the area has been a life goal realised after too many years living in cities, with so many amazing routes and landscapes to explore on our doorstep, I am happiest outdoors.

I look after the website, email comms and socials for Striders as well as getting stuck in with whatever needs doing along with the rest of the committee. I am always keen to hear ideas and feedback from all members so please give me a shout if you’d like a chat about what we do.

I’ve met so many wonderful people and made great friends through Knaresborough Striders and our local running community. When I’m not running, I can be found with a glass of wine in hand, cheering on the Scottish Rugby team – which can be painful!
