MEET THE TEAM:

Paula Jones, Leader
I am originally from Brighton but have lived in North Wales for 7 years. I didn’t start running until I was 50 after watching the Brighton Marathon, I remember standing near the finish line thinking I wish I could take part!!! Now, nearly 9 years later I am a Run Leader for Porth Eirias Runners. I am not a natural sporty person but I love being out with the group and I take great pleasure in supporting others on their running journey.

 

Jasper McQueen, Leader
I started running in 2019 after my wife had joined Porth Eirias Runners C25K program. I was inspired to try it myself but didn't think I would last a week as running had never interested me. I am happy to say I loved it and soon joined Porth Eirias Runners. I have since run a variety of races from 5k to a marathon…….everyone loves a medal and a T-shirt!!! Running with a group helped me gain greater fitness and a better understanding of pre and post run preparations, and it's just more fun running with a group. About 2 years ago I was asked if I would like to become a Run Leader, I jumped at the chance to give back the support I had received and help other runners on their journey to success.

 

Melanie Palmer, Leader (run/walking group)
In 2019, at the age of 50, I was encouraged to do a 0-5k course with Porth Eirias Runners.
I thought I was too old and the wrong shape to run, but I was proved very wrong!! I completed the course then continued to attend the group weekly. Running has been beneficial for my mental and physical health and of course its lots of fun as well.
I was very fortunate to join the RunWales100 team, in the October of 2019 we had a fabulous time running the Cardiff half marathon. Also in 2019 I was approached about becoming a Run Leader for my group, again I was a bit unsure at first but decided to go for it and I have never looked back.
Ann O'Connor, Leader
I have been a member of the Porth Eirias Runners (PER) for a few years now and became a Run Leader just over two years ago. I'm in my mid-50s and certainly not a super fit, elite runner, but the group encourage and supported me on my journey. I feel so lucky to be able to run and socialise with people of all background and abilities, and I enjoy being able to give something back and encourage others to take that first step.

 

Mark Evans, Leader
I started running in 2020 @ 46 years young, doing C25K with Porth Eirias Runners. I didn't think I would last a week as I had tried running before on my own and did not stick to it, but I’m happy to say I now really enjoy running!!! I have since run a variety of races from 5k to a marathon. Running with the group has helped me find my pace and my love for running, it's much more enjoyable running with others and I have made so many new friends. About 2 years ago I was asked if I would like to become a Run Leader, I jumped at the chance to give back the support I had received and even ran a C25k course to help people find their love for running, it's amazing how we all think we can't run 1 min let alone 5k. I love being part of this friendly no pressure run club.
Catrin Williams, Leader
I used to run solo until I joined Porth Eirias Runners in 2019. Joining the group and running with others helped me gain confidence, it has also helped me mentally & physically. I have learnt that being a larger body size doesn't stop you running and I have found the courage to enter races and cover all different distances, I also enjoy the club social runs which include a glass of prosecco or two!!! I loved running with the club so much when I heard they wanted a new leader I put my name forward and was overwhelmed when they chose me. I am looking forward to putting my bubbly character and running experience to good use and helping others take that first step on their running/walking journeys.
