Dewsbury 10K 2000 on my 50th birthday
I started running in 1983,shortly after the first London Marathon.I ran my first marathon in 1984(Bradford) and joined Horsforth Harriers shortly afterwards. I have since completed around 16 road marathons (and many more off-road)including several London marathons and New York in 2000. As I write this in 2014,age and ill-health has curtailed my running performances somewhat,but I still turn out for cross country races for my first claim club,Horsforth Harriers.
I also help my wife ,Kathy, with coaching beginners at her club,Valley Striders.
