Duncan Fothergill – Chairman

I became a member of Harrier in January 2014 and soon fell in love with the club (and it’s members) and was made men’s captain in the same year.  I understand that elected as the men’s captain wasn’t down to my running ability but more about my eagerness to make things happen.  During my 3 years, I’ve tried to encourage as many members as possible to run in our vast range of races in the area; I’ve also ensured that both the Harrogate league and cross-country races hosted by ourselves were a great success.

I look forward to the challenges ahead for Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers and will take on the role as chair with 100% effort.

Marian Codling – Publicity

Publicity Office at present and any items of interest, races etc, should be sent to me for inclusion in the local press. As well as doing a press report most weeks, I keep a scrap book of Harriers activities and am on about the 6th so far. These are available on request any time, and I usually bring an odd one or two to social events. Ian and I do a race most weekends, but when I’m not involved with Harrier-based activities, I like gardening, reading, doing crosswords and other puzzles and I could maybe be described as a “stalwart” of the WI. I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren, spread far and wide, and I like to visit them. I was a teacher in a past life!

Rob Burn – Head Coach

Rob Burn, started running at the age of twenty eight during the running boom in the early eighties and have been a member of Thirsk and Sowerby Harriers ever since.
I have always been in to competitive sport with football being my first choice but like to take part in any team game! I love running hills, trails and country but don’t mind running anywhere if the body will let me.
I came into coaching simply because no one else would do it however I do love to encourage and to motivate.
Also from time to time I’ve been known to be just that little bit competitive.
