Favourite Discipline: Cross Country

What do you enjoy about Crook AC: For a smaller club in the region, it’s grown massively, it also has the desire to compete in all competitions as well as recognising all abilities in the club

What’s your favourite Race?: Blaydon

Proudest moment as a Crook AC Member: Being first home for the club in both Northern and North Eastern Cross country championships, and the fact the team took so many northern scalps.

How/why did you end up joining the club: I was encouraged by a few local people in races and found it has the right balance that worked for me and my personal goals
