Run Leaders

Page Title

Est 1984


Steve Walker

I take a lot of satisfaction in leading groups and helping people progress with their running. I love middle/long distance road running. Outside of running I have a passion for foreign travel and commercial aviation. I’ve been labelled as head of the Telford Harriers international travel department!

Kerry Richardson

I joined Telford Harriers in 2007 specifically to train for the London Marathon. Middle distance and off-road is my happy running place. I enjoy taking groups where we are happy to go outside the comfort-zone, using the group as a driving force.


Robert Friel

I love leading groups at Harriers. My groups are always a chatty pace and as much fun as possible, we are here to enjoy ourselves right, and I try to do that to the full. As a run leader I am always here for support and help. Living in Telford pretty much all my life means I have a good bank of routes that I love to take people on, its always nice showing people places they haven't been before.


All of our run groups are managed by our UK Athletics qualified run leaders.

We have over 30 run leaders as we cater for all abilities. 

At each club night you will find a range of different sessions and paces, with each group being headed up by our friendly run leaders. 

Jenny  Robinson

I have been a member of Telford Harriers a number of years and am one of the older members of the club. When I first joined I hadn't done much running, and although I will never be one of the faster runners, I very much enjoy what I do. 

I love being a run leader and encouraging others. I try and vary my routes to keep it interesting for everyone, a mixture of road and off road in the summer months. Also I enjoy spreading the word of how friendly our club is and how it is a club for all abilities.

Phil Shieber

I came to running later in life than many and after doing little or no exercise for nearly 30 years. The most important thing I've got from being a Harrier is the encouragement to push on and fulfill my potential. I wanted to repay that, so now as a Run Leader, as well as offering mostly on road routes up to 10k, I often act as 'Tail Gunner', making sure no one gets left behind and helping other runners step up the pace.
