SINFIN RUNNING CLUB

MEET THE

COMMITTEE

DUNCAN COWIE

CHAIRMAN

I first joined the club in 1999 when I was in need of support and advice after getting a place in the London Marathon that year.  It was a great choice as I got all the help I needed from the experienced runners.  I developed a real passion for running and had a go at anything from 5K to marathons as well as cross country and other off road events.  I’ve ran around 15 marathons in and beyond the UK and numerous other events in fantastic places with SRC friends.  These days I particularly love off-road running along with many other like-minded people in the club and I regularly take part in cross country races and the club’s brilliant fell racing championship.  As always with SRC, the camaraderie and mutual support among club members is what makes it so special.

BRIAN WARNER

CLUB SECRETARY

I have been with SRC since 2010 and joined in an effort to shed a few pounds and get into shape. Little did I know how much I would end up enjoying running and it becoming a big part of my life.  I’ve had a go at everything (Road/XC and Fell) and enjoy every part of it – particularly the outdoor freedom and the time where you can simply relax and concentrate on nothing more than running.  I’m back now purely on the roads and enjoy anything up to a half marathon distance but I don’t do further than that.  I’ve found SRC to be such a great club with everyone inspiring and encouraging you to always do your best.  Every day is different but some days that day can be yours...

MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY & VICE CHAIR

I'm the Club Membership Secretary. I've been in the club since 2019 and running fairly seriously now since doing my first half marathon in 2012. I'm a road runner and although I love the countryside absolutely hate all things mud and so it's solid surfaces all the way for me. I run up to marathon distance and enjoy trying to perfect my pace and times whilst still enjoying some of the finer things in life (beer, wine, chocolate, cake etc).

JANE WADE

TREASURER

Hello, I'm Jane or some call me Wadey!  I'm a newbie only joining the club in September 2022.  I've been a keen club runner for over 20 years and raced most distances from 1 mile to marathons, including one ultra and a Welsh mountain race.  I enjoy on and off road running but do love the fells, which is what initially attracted me to this awesome club.

I am one of the Club's Welfare Officers. I've been running over 10 years now. I prefer road but always willing to try other things, happy to run most distances and enjoy the challenge running gives me.  I love the social side of running and will run with anyone at their pace & distance if it helps them improve.

GARY LANE

WELFARE OFFICER

Hi, my name is Gary, I am the other half of the welfare team. I have been running for 3 years and with the club for two.  I joined because I wanted a community and have felt encouraged and supported along my short running journey.  I ran my 1st marathon in 2021 and look forward to completing more in the future.  I like all aspects from parkrun to the trails to large events like the Great North Run.

NICKY POCHIBKO

LADIES CAPTAIN & SOCIAL SECRETARY

Hi, I'm Nicky and have been with Sinfin since late 2020. I became hooked on running since my first marathon in 2014, and have competed in triathlons too even though cycling was always my difficulty. After becoming a mother I discovered the joy of buggy running and have received great support from the club. I enjoy fell, trail and cross country running, over different terrains and distances and the beauty of nature.  Since joining Sinfin I have found great inspiration from the members and endeavour to support them to be the best runners they can be. When I’m not running, I like to walk my dog and swim for relaxation.

Hi, I'm Brendan and I am the club kitman!  I started running in 1994 and joined Sinfin in 2010.

MARTIN SOWER

RUN COORDINATOR

Hi I’m Martin. I’ve been running since 2008 and have run for Sinfin Running Club since 2018. I enjoy being outdoors and running is just one of the things you’ll find me doing in my free time. My main focus is longer distance running with a number of ultras and personal challenges lined up this year. Those who know me know I enjoy a good hill and am looking forward this season’s fell championship. I love being part of the club, there is something for everyone and I’m looking to build on my Leadership in Running Fitness by supporting everyone achieve their running goals.

DENNIS CERANIC

RUN ADVICE SUPPORT

Hi, I’m Dennis Ceranic.  I joined Sinfin in 2020 after not running for a long time.  I mainly stick to road running but tried the fells last year and enjoyed it, distance races i.e. half and full marathons are my preference but will have a go at anything.  Joining Sinfin has really been good for me.  The club offers so much and the friendliness and social side are second to none.  If there’s anything I can help you with please ask.

CHRIS SWAN

EVENTS ORGANISER

I joined the club in 2022, I re-found my love for running in 2014 doing mud runs, and then took part in run November in 2019 Being a busy healthcare worker and having a young family (2 boys now 4 and 7) I found running a good escape from busy day to day life and a great stress relief and for general fitness. I soon found my passion and competitive nature for running reignited in running road races and have been a fan ever since.  In the last year I have tried my hand at fell racing which I found challenging and enjoyable the group were really friendly and welcoming, I highly recommend them. I have completed two marathons so far and without Sinfin and the long run group especially my second one would have been much tougher; my favourite distance has to be a 10k but I am always open to new challenges. If I can ever help in anyway just give me shout always up for a run.

ROBERT LANE

SOCIAL MEDIA LEAD

I've been running since 2011, originally running with Team Derby Runner before joining Sinfin in 2016. I'm a big fan of fast short distance road running, anything upto a half marathon, but preferrably 10ks.  Over the years I've also done my fair share of cross country, fell and trail running and have ran circa 500 races, 50% of which parkruns, which I'm a massive advocate of.  I organise the club's parkrun Championship as well as look after much of the social media content.
