Katrina joined the Spartans in the summer of 2006. She initially joined only for company on training runs when her training partner moved away, and never expected to enjoy being a club member so much. Prior to joining the Spartans she had run the London marathon twice. Despite vowing never to run a marathon again, she has finally succumbed and plans to run another marathon (Edinburgh) in 2009, and to enjoy the Club camaraderie of training with a large group.
Katrina was elected to the Committee in 2007 and was Race Director for the Relays in 2008. She is also a level 2 Endurance Coach, and has a particular interest in coaching complete novices to running. Katrina, along with Tessa, set up the very successful Spartans Starter Group in April 2008. The Starter group has continued to go from strength to strength and the group now meets twice weekly, on a Monday and Thursday evening.
Away from the Spartans, Katrina is an Accountant working for the NHS, is a regular attendee at a local gym and likes to read to relax.
