Was Runner Of The Month for
A member for over 21 years, Colin has been a rock for the club, taking on a number of roles over the years benefitting LERC and taking us forward.
Naturally, after such a long time of competing, Colin isn't regularly smashing PB's - in fact you'd do well to find him running over a 'normal' 5k or 10k distance. Colin is a man of the mountains and loves a fell race or two (hundred), regularly heading out and putting his body through the pain.
Recently, Colin clocked up his 1,000th race for LERC, which is a phenomenal feat and not something I'm sure we'll see again, certainly not in the near future anyway.
This achievement didn't stop Colin though and through August he accumulated many more miles of inclines, as well as supporting the club at the league races and club nights.
A man who has time for a pint with anyone, his team spirit and his commitment to LERC are outstanding. Without him, Long Eaton Running Club would not be what it is today!
