I'm a lifelong athletics fan and active runner and triathlete, having completed 13 London Marathons and qualified for the AAA Marathon Championships on several occasions. Other marathon races include New York, Berlin and Melbourne. Cross-country is another of my favourites.
Formerly with Warrington AC and Mandale AC, I joined the Harriers in 2004 and have been their press and publicity officer ever since. I'm also chairman and co-founder of Darlington Triathlon Club. Duathlon is another major interest and I have sealed a Great Britain age group place for the 2016 ETU European Duathlon Championships.
