David's Roles at Darlington Harriers

Coach, Website Developer

About David

I joined Darlington Harriers in 2015, having previously been with Quakers Running Club. I started running in 2014 when looking for a new hobby after I started playing football less frequently, and it didn't take me long to get the running bug.

I enjoy various types of races, having done road races, trail races, fell races, and my particular favourite, Cross Country.

Since joining Harriers I was asked to create a new, modern website to promote our ever growing club, and all of the fantastic coaching and events that we have on offer to our members.

I completed the LiRF (Leadership in Running Fitness) course in October 2015, and will be taking Cross Country training, and Beginners training sessions, along with our ever growing list of coaches.

I'm enjoying reading all about coaching techniques, and have a keen interest in how technology can assist in coaching.

Outside of running, I'm a season ticket holder at Darlington FC, and a musician, so you might catch me down the Quakerhouse Open Mic night strumming out a few tunes.
