Meet the HRC Team!

The Committee – Who are we?

Chair – Karen Martin – I’m Karen and I’m the current, and first female, chair of the club. I joined HRC in 2014 because I wanted to lose a bit of weight and get fit. I had a fantastic year of PB’s and made it on to club records but following injury in 2015 & 2016 I was unable to run so got involved in Committee to stay in touch and to feel part of the club whilst not running. I joined committee as an ordinary member in 2015 and I’m proud to now be the current chair and be part of a team helping to build a friendly, successful and happy running club

Committee Member – Ross Arnold – I’m Ross and I caught the running bug after trying to fill the void that football left after a serious knee injury and I love getting involved and helping the club and other runners where I can. Joined the committee in 2018. 0069e4cf-62e5-4dd0-9518-dca41c995863
Committee Member – Tony Bacon
Committee Member – Clare Everitt – I took up running about 8 years but got bored running on my own and not seeing my times improve. So, in 2015 I joined HRC.

I know there will always to someone from the club to run with and have seen my times improve so much.

With the help of the HRC family I have run in 4 half marathons and lots of other distances that I didn’t have the confidence to do before.

General inquiries should be directed through the Club Secretary…but any committee member is happy to help you!

Stephen Reyes –

 Who does what?

Each committee member has taken a broad area of responsibility, the actual tasks within that responsibility are carried out by a variety of members from the whole club. The Committee member responsible will keep in contact with all their volunteers and ensure they have all the support they need or seek the wider support of the committee to ensure they do.

“Vacant” all the tasks and wishes of the committee will be listed here even if there is no one to do it yet – fancy a go? – full descriptions of the vacant posts will be coming shortly, but in the mean time contact the responsible committee member for more information.

Fancy a go at something that’s not vacant – let the committee member know – you never know what might be happening behind the scenes, and knowing you want to help can help us plan!
