Mark is the Chairman of Halifax Harriers. This entitles him to sit in exciting meetings with other committee members and eat biscuits. Mark is a keen triathlete, his excuse to wear lots of lycra with impunity. As the picture shows, he also plays the pan pipes. Any comments and suggestions which might help improve the running of the club, Mark's the man to talk to.
After being a member of the Harriers for 30 years and seeing my running times "head south" in a dramatic fashion I have decided that club administration is the way forward. I met my wife Sue at the Harriers many years ago and have been trying to run away ever since (only joking, we do everything together). So, if you have any queries about club life or how the club works, then I’m your man, obviously with a lot of help from Sue.
Never without a smile and a kind word (except when racing). Chris is also the Social Secretary and ensures we have plenty of events to enjoy, such as the Annual Dinner and the club trip to Majorca.
Stef looks after the money.
Steve is a relative newcomer to Halifax Harriers but he brings with him three decades of experience in athletics. He's a shy, retiring type but you'll find him on the track at 7 pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays, putting our young track and field stars through their paces.
The man with the ironic name. Endurance coach specialising in fell running, trail running, cross country and road. He's also the person to moan to about the website.
John is a Coach specialising in the art of chucking stuff, though he also looks after athletes who jump and run. If you happen to be tall and you find John looking at you with this beaming smile, don't worry, he has probably just been assessing the length of your levers.
Angela specialises in coaching athletes with disabilities. She coaches on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 pm and has experience to paralympic level.
You can find her group on the track over by the shot putt area.
Paul specialises in middle distance running. He's very important to the club as he's the only coach who can still keep up with the elite teenagers. Although officially a Vet, he's teen punk rebel through and through, with ink and piercing that might make your eyes water and occasionally a blue rinse to prove it.
Victoria is an active member of the club in committees but is quite likely to be the first person to greet you as a new member, serving coffee, tea and biscuits (if little in the way of sympathy) in the clubhouse. There isn't much she doesn't know about the whos, whys and whats of the club, so you're in safe hands. Victoria is also in charge of selling and ordering club kit.
