About Ian

I joined the club in 1955 having been inspired to take up running by watching likes of Bannister , Pirie and Chataway performing at White City London. Since then I think I have enjoyed most positions from Assistant Secretary to Club President.I am a qualified official and middle distance coach although I am not active in coaching.I am also a member of the North East Masters Athletic Club and was responsible for their Cross country championships held at The Education Village Haughton in March this year.I am the link between our club and Croft Circuit where we hold three events annually.Being a veteran athlete as well as helping in the administration of the club has been a very rewarding experience.
