Adrian Craven Running at Yorkshire Marathon

Adrian Craven

Club chair & coach

Adrian, our Chair, brings a wealth of experience to the role having spent 6 years as Chair at another local running club.

Adrian began his running journey competing in cross country during his school days, receiving county representative honours in the process.

After a significant break, he started running again 10 years ago and enjoys running all distances from being a regular at parkrun to having completed three marathons.

As a coach Adrian leads structured sessions and is available to help members on an individual basis to achieve their running goals.

Alan Marshall

Club treasurer

Alan has been running since his school days, predominately as part of his time in the Army.  In 1986 he completed his first and only marathon, in West Berlin, and subsequently went back in 2001 to do the Berlin Half Marathon for only his second formal event.

Alan took up regular running in 2013 when he retired from football refereeing through injury. Since then, he qualified as a Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF), which has led to him encouraging and leading new runners in the Selby area. A regular parkrunner, Alan has completed over 150 park runs and has volunteered over 30 times.

Alan enjoys both road and trail running and is looking forward to assisting and encouraging runners for Snaith and Cowick Running Club.

Helen Craven

Club Secretary

Helen is married with 2 lively dogs who both enjoy long walks along the many footpaths in and around the Snaith and Cowick area.

She has always enjoyed exercise and sport, since running cross country, playing badminton and hockey at school. She has been running on a regular basis since 2011 and has completed numerous distances on both road and trail up to and including 2 marathons and numerous 24-hour team events.

A regular runner at parkrun, she also enjoys volunteering at parkrun and junior parkrun.  Helen holds a Leader in Running Fitness qualification with England Athletics and enjoys meeting people and helping them with their running goals. She has helped with several couch to 5k programmes in recent years.

Nigel Taylor

Club Welfare

Nigel is our Welfare Officer. All of his family enjoy running and are members of athletic/running and Tri clubs.

He is a keen runner and Triathlete and has been running for around 6 years now, having got into running after retiring from being a Semi-Pro Rugby League Match Official.

One of Nigel’s roles as a match official was Club Welfare Officer and he used to tutor Safeguarding for the RFL. Nigel’s experience in this area goes back over 20 years and he hopes that he can bring some of his experience to the club and his role.
