I have been involved in athletics with Walton AC for over 20 years, initially as an interested helper, then an official, an athlete and then a coach. Having played team sports until my mid thirties I started road running then became a track and field athlete as a veteran.
I have been a qualified endurance coach for 15 years or so. I am currently part way through the UKA level 3 qualification. I currently coach middle and long distances at the club on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings and some Sundays.
I am currently chairman of the club committee, team manager of the senior men’s track and field team and the men and boy’s cross country teams. I am a qualified track and field judge and a timekeeper. I also edit the clubs website and still manage to compete as a veteran.
