Meet Andy 

Hi, I’m Andy, and I’m Events Co-ordinator for Start Running – Stay Running.

I am married to co-founder Linda, and I’m excited to be joining the team and helping to create an exciting and motivational virtual event programme and also plan lots of exciting things over the coming year.

I started running back in 2011 when I took on the Bristol 10k after starting from scratch at the turn of New Year.  I soon caught the running bug, and in 2017, I successfully trained for and completed The Virgin London Marathon. In 2012 I founded The Bridgwater Half  Marathon, 10K and 5K races (now in its 8th year) and work as Secretary and Organiser of this event which works with Bridgwater Friends of Cancer Research to raise money every year.

I’m a big advocate of running – I find it helps me greatly with my mental health and wellbeing. I’m looking forward to supporting members of our free Facebook Group and within ‘The Inside Track’.
