I joined the club on day one. I was a member of Bideford AAC at the time but soon realised this club had more to offer and switched my allegiance. I had already run races up to half marathon distance but had never thought I would be capable of running a marathon. With the club's training sessions and the support of the other members I have now completed several marathons and even an Ultra marathon this year. I have sadly also become a bit of an expert on injuries having suffered more than my share!
I have been running, slowly, for about 16 years and have been a member of ORC from the very beginning! I have only recently joined the committee
I joined the club in March 2014, so am a fairly new member. However I do feel fully part of what feels like a big happy and supportive family. I have only been running for two years and prefer trail running to road running. Unfortunately my dog Jeffery is now too old to join me.
