Elaine Richardson

Club Secretary

I started running late in life attending Raphael’s Parkrun and have been hooked ever since.
When I joined HWRC, whilst striving for improvement, discovered the club do not forget the importance of running for fun.
I love being part of such a welcoming, friendly club and happy to now have the opportunity to give something back by joining the Committee.

I joined Harold Wood Running Club in 2019 and elected to Men’s Captain since 2022. 

My role on the committee is to help create an inclusive and supportive atmosphere to help our members achieve their running goals – however big or small. HWRC welcomes runners of all abilities from beginners through to experienced runners competing in our local leagues.
