President: Gail Duckworth
Gail is our very own president and super star, with a menagerie of international medals and world records!
Club Captain: Sam Dear
Sam or “Sicknote” as he is affectionately known is often seen recovering from his injuries by supporting on the sidelines and putting his “Luton voice” to good use.
Vice Captain: Mike Furness
Mike is one of our road running coaches and together with Sam, they make a formidable team of chief encouragers / naggers of all our members!
Club Chairperson: James Lowe
James has completely thrown himself into the club as a relative newbie to running. It’s rumoured his champion quizzing skills won him the chairperson’s role, or perhaps a rare defeat meant it was the booby prize!!
Secretary: Chris George
Don’t let his “tough-guy” look fool you, Chris G is as friendly as they come! However, terrified by cows he can be known to be seen sprinting off in the opposite direction when on summer trail runs.
Treasurer: Roger Seldon
Roger holds the purse strings for the club and deals with all things financial. Don’t forget to pay him your membership fees or he’ll be knocking down your door!
Junior Coaching Representative: Warren Rose
Warren is the calmest person you’re ever likely to meet. Nothing phases him. Whether it’s 30 under 11’s on a Tuesday night or a quagmire of a cross-country course in mid January, he offers the reassuring voice to all – especially the adults!
Publicity Officer: Sara Lowe
James’ righthand woman or is James her lefthand man? We don’t really know, but what we do know is that Sara keeps us in the public eye and celebrates all our achievements.
Committee Member: Pete Mackrell
The third most famous man from Burnley, behind Jimmy Anderson and Sir Ian McKellan. A man of few words, Pete loves his marathons, spreadsheets, Burnley Football Club and, of course, beer!
Committee Member: Jo Dear
Jo loves a marathon. She’ll often be seen on long training runs around the country lanes of Beds & Bucks or otherwise saving the lives of our 4-legged friends as our resident vet.
