Committee and Welfare Officer: Christine Jones

I started running in 1979 as a 17 year old when lots of girls that age drop exercise for far more interesting hobbies! Yes I really am that old!

Up to my mid 30’s I was a competitive runner racing at a decent level over Cross Country, 3000 and 1500 metres on the track.

I continued competing throughout my 30 years police service but now I run for enjoyment, to socialise with like minded people and to hold the inevitable middle age spread at bay.

After moving to Harrogate 4 years ago I found the perfect club in Nidd Valley Road Runners for just that. Everyone was so welcoming with a huge sense of team spirit.

I volunteered for a place on the committee to give something back whilst enjoying that sense of belonging.
