Steve started running in 1994 and joined the Spartans in 1995, his main reason for running being to stay fit and keep the weight off. Running with the Spartans meant Steve started to train properly and soon found himself entering anything up to a half marathon. Like most people he achieved some quick gains in the first two years and won the most improved Spartan award. After lots of hard work he managed to achieve all the running targets & times he had set himself.
Steve doesn’t think his running is exceptional, but it is consistent and Steve has found it very fulfilling to make the Spartan team at many events. Having (not that!) recently turned 40 he feels it is time to let the younger club members take up the mantle.
Steve joined the committee in 2008, but before then he was always keen to help the club at the many of the events we put on.
The one question that Steve is always asked is ‘when are you going to run the marathon?’ Steve says ‘having managed to avoid it for 12yrs his instinct is to avoid it for a few more!’
