Barry joined the Spartans just over back in December 2010. He had been running solo for 6 months and had ran 3 half marathons in that time, all over 2 hours. He wanted to beat that barrier. After running the Stevenage half where Barry says he spoke to Tracy Pez who recommended he join, he did!!
Barry describes himself as a people person and had previous experience of managing a men’s football teams and had enjoyed helping players develop their skills, so it seemed the next natural step forward to join the coaching team and to help people and pass on what he has learnt.
Barry’s running goals are to P.B at his longer distances – marathon, 20 mile, half marathon and 10 mile events so we’ll be seeing him at training Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays!
Barry recently took on the role of Kit Man, so if you need any FVS gear, you know who to contact!
