Chair

I've been a GVH member since it's formation in Spring 1991. Most of my best friends have been made through the club and I've had great advice and support over the years so wanted to put something back in. I'd recommend GVH to anyone who is a current runner or beginner. After 5 happy years as Men's Captain I'm very proud to be Chair of the club and we are going from strength to strength with many new members and branching out as an affiliated Triathlon club this year.
Secretary

Ive been a member of GVH since January 2012, when I joined having taken part in one of the famous marathon training runs the year before, and been most impressed with the club and the organisation of the runs.
Ive only been a ‘runner’ as such for around 3-4 years, but in that time have run 5 half marathons, several 10milers and this year completed my first marathon – I hope its the first of many, as I am now on a mission to speed up and do the next one a little faster!
Men's Captain
Ed Price
men@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I have been a Harrier since 2008. I’d always run since schooldays, but joining the club has taken my running onto a new level & made me much more competitive! I’ve run one marathon & missed out on a sub 3hr by 23 seconds, something I hope to put right at London 2014. I’m responsible for the masochistic fun that is Tuesday night rep sessions.
Women's Captain
Susie Ivin
women@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I've been with GVH for 4 years and in this time I've run 7 marathons and enjoyed many other events and social activities with the Club. I'm also a keen triathlete and have completed the London Triathlon twice.
Treasurer
Steve Newing
treasurer@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I've been with GVH for 6 years and run 5 marathons and various road and cross country events. The best move I made was joining the Club as it made me a better runner through the structured training programmes. There is also a great social side to the Club which makes the running all the more enjoyable.
Social Secretary
Paula Cook
social@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I have been with GVH for 9 years & have completed 8 marathons & several other running events. I have also made a lot of friends, all of which prompted me into my new role as Social Secretary.
Communications Officer
Dave Wise
comms@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I joined GVH in December 2011 and have loved every minute since! As well as the training, I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and encouragement at the club and have improved greatly with the help and advice of the more experienced runners.
Being a newcomer, I enjoy trying different events, like cross country, marathons, trail runs etc. I have completed 3 marathons and numerous half marathons so far, and look forward to many more.
Kit Manager
Helen Terry
kit@gadevalleyharriers.co.uk
I have been running with GVH for almost 20 years and have completed 5 marathons - I'm not quick but I get there eventually! as well as looking after the kit I also organise the Summer Handicap Series and help organize the Marathon training runs.
