Tell us your name. Brian Hainsworth
How and when did you first start running? At school I was a sprinter but this stopped after leaving, I began running again at the end of summer 2016
What brought you to Nidd Valley? After training by myself and then completing the Leeds Half Marathon in May 2017, I decided I quite liked this running lark and thought I’d join a club. After looking into local clubs, Nidd was the one that I liked the sound of and I definitely made the right choice.
When did you join Nidd Valley? June 2017
What is your favourite running music? Genre or specific tracks? I prefer to not listen to music anymore while running but Go by The Chemical Brothers is a good track to get you going.
What is your favourite food before and after running? Before running I like to have a plain 3 egg omelette. After anything to hand be it cake, chocolate, banana…
What is your best running tip that you would like to share with us? Never compare yourself to another runner, there will always be someone faster or slower than you. Ultimately you are competing against yourself and just enjoy it.
What is your proudest moment in your running career? Helping a best friend get into running and running Fountains Abbey parkrun with them for their first non stop run. Also on a different day, being there when another best friend completed their first non stop run at the same parkrun after being coached by Nidd.
What are your running goals? To complete an Ultra.
What event are you training for at the moment? The Yorkshire Marathon.
