John Griffin

John Griffin is the Club’s Chairman.

He joined the club shortly after it was formed and was a formidable runner in his time! Irrepressible John dedicates a huge amount of his time to the Club – from putting up the tents and storing the kit to time keeping and handing out club vests.

He’s also Co-Race Director for the Welsh Castles Relay and an official for the Gwent League and most major races in South Wales.

Place of birth:  Paddington London .

Favourite running distance: was 10 to 20 miles. I found the Marathon a step too far after the 4th one. Slow learner.

Favourite race/event:   Rhayader 20. and obviously the Castles.

What you bring to the committee:  28 years of Consistency and an aim to implement new ideas to improve our club.

Interesting fact: The Second World War was declared exactly 1 month after I was born but not my fault.

Club Safety Guidelines

The following advice is intended to keep our runners SAFE at all times!
It is also essential that, whilst out running as a club, we are seen to be polite, responsible, set a good example & not put others at risk.
AT ALL TIMES BE SAFE BE SEEN! You can never be too visible! During the day, always wear bright or light-coloured clothing - fluorescent is good.
At night we would strongly recommend that people ALWAYS wear light-coloured clothing plus a REFLECTIVE (not just fluorescent) bib or sash.
Clip on flashers are a great way to be seen. NEVER ASSUME YOU'VE BEEN SEEN. Always be cautious with traffic.
We would like to remind people that they are responsible for their own safety and that they run at their own risk.
