Men’s Captain: Martin Lofthouse

I am 50 (yes I did have a hard paper round!) and live in Harrogate with my wife Christine and my daughter Sarah (who is a member of NVRR Juniors).

I have always done some running since I left school but I got in to racing after doing Parkrun and then entering the 2013 Guy Fawkes. I joined NVRR soon after and have enjoyed representing the club at races ever since, particularly the Evening League. I enjoy training with the club, especially intervals. My favourite distance is 10k and I have run one half marathon to date (The Great North). I intend to do my first marathon later this year. My proudest achievement in running is probably winning my age category in the Harewood 10 mile race last year.

Away from running my hobbies are fishing, cricket and eating!
