Karen Chadwell

Welfare: Karen Chadwell 

Name: Karen Chadwell, Club Welfare Officer

Place of birth: Rottenrow Maternity Hospital, Glasgow

Favourite running distance: Something longer.  Short stuff hurts.  As does falling over (I have a reputation…)

Favourite race/ event: Just one? I can’t do that! If I had to pick a race, it’s got to be Snowdonia Marathon, I have a real soft spot for it. As far as an event goes, it goes without saying; I am totally and utterly obsessed with parkrun.  Volunteering, running, walking, touring, reading and researching, talking about it, boring the pants off anyone who can’t escape me…..

What you bring to the committee: I like to think I’m a voice for the less speedy club members, aiming to keep things inclusive.

Interesting fact: I like to bake 😊

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.
