Hi, I’m Gareth and I will be your Club Captain for 2017-18. I’m a third year Chemistry student, and when I’m not in lectures or labs, I’m busy being a founding member of the #lookgoodrungoodproject at 344B aka HQ. I run 400m, both with and without hurdles, and have represented my home club of Derby AC from a local to a national level. My job for the year is to ensure the club runs smoothly, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere that allows everyone to perform to the best of their ability and achieve whatever goals they set! If you have any questions about the club, no matter how big or small, I’ll be more than happy to help. I can be reached at:
Hi I’m Becky, a third year medic and long distance runner. I enjoy running cross country, road and apparently I’m not bad at 5k and 10k on the track. I’ve been part of the club for the past three years and this will be my second time on the club committee. This year I am really excited to be the club’s Vice Captain. My role is to help oversee the club, make sure everything we do throughout the year runs smoothly and help the other members of the committee to improve and develop the club. My role also involves getting as many people as possible involved in all the fun things we do as a club throughout the year and promoting our achievements. Whether you’re a sprinter, distance runner, field eventer or just train for enjoyment or to keep fit, this is a great club to be part of! If you have any questions about anything or want to get more involved in the club drop me an email:
Hi I'm Heather, and I'll be your track and field captain for 2017/2018. I'm a first year Chemistry PhD student and first joined the club way back in 2013. I'm a 400m/200m sprinter. My job is to make sure people know what's happening in relation to competitions and training. I'll sort out the teams for BUCS, varsity and Steel cup. As well as organising warm weather training for around Easter time. With both men's and women's relay teams making finals at BUCS this year we want to try and replicate or better that over the next year. We cater for all abilities and if you have any questions please email me any time.
Hi I’m Sarah! I’m a final year History student and am lucky enough to be your Cross Country Captain for the year. I am a long distance athlete with a preference for mud and hills (perfect conditions for cross country)! It’s my job to sort out all the cross country races (& the nights out afterwards!). Our autumn term is pretty race intense with the South Yorkshire League, Manchester and Leeds relays, as well as the highlight of the season: BUCS Cross Country. Anyone is able to race and we’re a friendly bunch! I’ll be at most of the club training and races but feel free to email me any questions:
Hi, I’m Eima Meade and I’m going to be the club treasurer for the 2017/18 season. I am a third-year economics and mathematics student, having joined the club at the start of second semester of first year I quickly found my feet in doing 60m, 100m and 200m. My role as treasurer will be to overview all the financial movement within the club and to make sure we use our funds to help expand the club for existing and new members. I’m happy to deal with any questions you may have, so feel free to contact me either at training, on facebook or by email:
Hey, I’m Harry and I’ll be your club secretary for 2017/18. I’m a second year History student and have been involved in athletics since I was 9. At this moment in time I’m a sprinter over 400m (this issue is sadly however up for debate). As secretary you’ll be hearing alot from me as one of my main responsibilities is the weekly newsletter and I’ll also be involved in the general running of the club. If you have a strong desire to gain the honor of a mention in the famous CRAIC for your antics on socials or performances in races or any other club queries I'll be your first port of call. Don’t hesitate to get in touch; I’m at every sprint session and can be reached over Facebook or by email. Hope to put a name to face soon.
Hi, I’m Jake and I’m a second year studying BA Geography. I joined Athletics last year as a complete newcomer to the sport and I’ve really enjoyed my being part of the club! I’ve gone from my local parkrun to competing at BUCS XC and getting to know everybody and become part of the club has been amazing. I’m a long distance and XC runner and you’ll usually find me either running up some hills or on a Football pitch playing for Geography. I’ll be your Social Secretary for the year with Brogan and we have got a whole host of social events planned for the upcoming year. These include Bar Crawls Down West Street and ROAR, to non-alcoholic socials such as Football/Netball, Pub Quizzes and walks into the Peak District. Let’s win Varsity again! If you want advice on anything or have suggestions any suggestions/ideas, email me at:
Hello, one and all! Get to know me, and I’ll get to know you, because I am your 2017/18 Social Secretary, along with my right, honourable friend, Jake Verity. What else do you want to know? Well… I am a third-year Environmental Scientist, middle-to-long-distance athlete and quintessential ROAR fanatic. My running history pre-dates the death of the dinosaurs – my parents met through running back in the EARLY 90’S – and I’ve been tearing up the tartan ever since. My three Desert Island Discs are: Chariots of Fire (eponymous film soundtrack), Run to the Hills (Iron Maiden) and It’s Tricky (Run DMC). I’m a migrating animal, travelling between Woodbourn Road track, Endcliffe Parkrun and Soyo on a weekly basis. Social seccing [sic] is just an extension of my nature. The one thing I love more than an athlete is a happy athlete. So here I am, Brogan McCawley, at your service:
Hi, I'm Laura. I'm a second year medic and I'll be the performance and development officer for 2017/2018. I've been involved in athletics since I was around 9 and compete over 100m and 200m. My role is to ensure everyone in the club is supported to reach their full potential and to encourage further recruitment throughout the academic year! I also want to develop the volunteering and fundraising within the club. If you have any questions and/or suggestions I'm at all the sprint sessions (even hills training), email me or drop me a message on facebook.
Hi there, my name is Ben and I’m in my second year studying Mechanical Engineering. I’m lucky enough to be the Long Run Coordinator for 2017/18. That means I arrange the two group runs which take place during each week, along with a weekly social session for those new to running. This year, plans are in place to introduce a longer group run on Sunday mornings too. Cross country, road, fell, track...I’m a massive fan of all distance running, and getting out there with other people adds another level of enjoyment for me. Running in a group helps to motivate you to maintain fitness, relieve stress, and meet new people – we’re a very chatty bunch! If there’s anything you want to ask; examples of group run routes, beautiful places to go running, or even how to make perfect egg-fried rice - I’d be happy to hear from you. Message me a message on Facebook ,drop me an email or give me a shout if you see me around!
