Meet the team!

The Management Committee are elected on an annual basis and look after the strategic and day-to-day running of the club.  All of the Committee are club members and can be found running at our weekly sessions, club events and other races.

Co – Chair and Leader in Running Fitness: Paul

Fell in love with running again when Brighton got its own Marathon in 2010, haven’t looked back since, most recently racing 800 metres as a Masters Athlete.

Co – Chair and Leader in Running Fitness: Claire

I’ve been running for a little over a year after signing up for a 10k race and have now caught the bug.  I am currently training for my first marathon in Amsterdam.

Secretary: Richee

I only started running in my late 20’s after joining a local running club in London. 

I really enjoyed the atmosphere at runs and races so ended up getting more involved after moving to Brighton. I prefer shorter road distances & parkruns – having completed my 100th parkrun in 2019

Treasurer: Jen

I am a a keen mountain biker and general out-doors type. I’ve loved making connections with the great people at Frontrunners and am passionate about making sure our club is as inclusive as possible for everyone in the LGBT+ community. It is so important that everyone, regardless of ability, feels welcome and supported.

Co – Communications and Marketing Officer: James

I started running about ten years ago in an attempt to get a bit fitter.  Since then, I have completed 3 marathons, numerous half-marathons and I am coming up to my 100th Parkrun very soon.  I truly love running outside and we are so lucky to be able to do so in beautiful Brighton.  I look forward to meeting you at a run soon!

Welfare Officer:  Neil

Never really been sporty but the (early cough) middle-aged spread started and I got dragged, reluctantly to a parkrun by a mate, 85 and counting and shaved 14mins off my first time.  I love the ethos of parkrun and running in general. Earlier this year I did my first full marathon.

After relocating back to the south I joined this group, it’s great to have all the support from everyone. I like to do the odd chipped time race and always enjoy spending time with fellow runners especially the LGBT ones.

Race Secretary:  John

I first starting running about 15 years ago to get myself fit again after an illness – and enjoyed it so much I carried on! Brighton’s a fantastic place to be based, and I particularly like trail and coastal running on our doorstep.

Co- Communications Officer and Leader in Running Fitness: Damian

I’m a long time triathlete (and have completed over 100 tris), and running is a passion of mine. I’m also looking to give back to local LGBTQ+ community. I enjoy meeting new people, whilst at the same time trying to keep the weight off from eating too many cakes and drinking beer!

Leader in Running Fitness: Sonia

I started running in 2007 when I joined the TA – I had to run 1.5 miles in under 13 minutes to pass selection! At the time that was a real challenge but now I comfortably cover much longer distances. These days running is my social life. It’s also my escape.
