Run Leader for Durham Mums On The Run, tells us about her journey as a Run Leader and Run Leader Mentor and how she has recently been awarded a British Empire Medal for her commitment to the sport.
Very well deserved Kate!
What does she love about it? Everything! Seeing women achieve when they’ve always believed they were rubbish at sport, or coming back to running after pregnancy and finding a safe place to get strong again, or being stretched and challenged if they’re experienced runners. We’re really fortunate to have the use of Durham University track so we can offer track sessions that work for all abilities. And it has a great cafe so we can be found hanging out there afterwards!
It’s been rewarding to be a run leader mentor for Run Together (and via my paid job at County Durham Sport). Helping other run leaders to get established and confident and seeing them encouraging runners all over Durham is brilliant.
