Club Committee

Club Chairman

Nigel Crompton 

Formerly our Club Captain Nigel regularly attends club training sessions and has been a member of Pensby Runners since 2006.

He is a keen fellrunner competing across North Wales in the main but also the Lakes and further afield with events in the Alps and the infamous Marathon Des Sables.

He is a UK Athletics qualified running coach, Corrective Exercise Specialist (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and trained in the Anatomy in Motion method. He owns the local running store in Heswall, The Runners Hub where members are always welcome to pop in to discuss club business.

Club Secretary

Joanne Cook

Jo has been a keen runner for almost 20 years, taking part in numerous races from 5Ks to marathons, preferring to go off-road when she can. Her greatest running achievement (so far) was completing the Wooler trail “marathon”; a gnarly 28.5 miles through the Cheviot hills, on her third attempt.

She also likes to swim, cycle and practice yoga to keep herself out of trouble, and enjoys nothing more than traversing bodies of water across the UK, and the globe. Jo is one of our Run Leaders, supporting beginner runners through the club’s “couch to 10K programme”.

Andy is the membership secretary and doesn’t know how to turn around when going for a run, owns a campervan and a dog which looks like a sheep. He spends his weekends ‘going long’ around the fells and trails of Britain.
