Hello to all fellow Romsey Road Runners! It is a pleasure and a privilege to become Chair of such a fantastic club. I’ve been a member for nearly five years since moving to Romsey and it was a great way to learn about all the back streets and surrounds of Romsey. And still is as our new Abbotswood run proved the other week! Romsey Road Runners is my first running club, although I ran for a number of years before moving here, and like many others I was a little daunted about the prospect of joining a running club. I needn’t have worried. All the people were really friendly from that first Thursday evening right through to today. It’s one of the things that makes this club special – that runners camaraderie we have no matter what your running motivation or ability.
I need to say thank you to Paul Bradley who has been a fantastic Chair for the club for the past six years. I hope I can live up to this tough act to follow. I look forward to working with you all and the committee to keep this club as the vibrant, exciting, friendly and ambitious club that it is.
