I joined Knaresborough Striders in 2019 having started doing parkruns the year before and found how enjoyable running is. As my running improved, I started taking part in the many races on offer throughout the year including road and cross country running. 

The social side of the club is great, and I enjoy the chatty social club runs each week and as a run leader I even get to choose where we run.

For the past couple of years, I have taken up fell running combining my love of fell walking and now running in the beautiful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors. As Trail & Fell Co-ordinator I hope to share this and encourage others to have a go at this challenging and rewarding form of running.
