George’s first few weeks as a HPH

Hi, my name is George Webster and I’ve been joining the Hyde Park Harriers sessions for 3 weeks; one Group 2 run and two Interval sessions. I’ve been really enjoying these sessions and running with my friends from parkrun and meeting new people.

George, very at home at his beloved Woodhouse Moor.

The run group leaders are brilliant and they’re really great at leadership. They also motivate the whole group which really motivates me in the sessions. The group leaders that I’ve been with are Laura Garratt, Emily Tasker and Toby Adkins. They all bring a massive sense of fun to the sessions, they’re really friendly and I can tell that they love leading the sessions. They’re also there to have a good chat, and really well organised as they know the plan and planned the route brilliantly. 

I’m loving seeing all of my friends and running with them. It’s also great fun having a catch-up chat with my friends.

I currently run a couple of times a week. I hope to improve my times and distance. Also, to train for running and taking part in 10K road races including the Kirkstall Abbey Dash which I would love to do. 

I’m loving the whole experience of Hyde Park Harriers as everyone are super friendly, the sessions are so much fun and amazing. I’m also super happy that I’ve been going to the running club sessions.
