Chairman: Mike Lane

Mike Lane
I have been with BPJ for the past 6/7 years, been running all my life but started to do a lot more after I stopped playing rugby due to going self-employed. I am happy to run any distance and have run a few marathons. I mainly enjoy the 10km races and half marathons. As I have grown up in and around the city I love to get out into the countryside and enjoy what’s around us. Outside the running the club, I enjoy most sports but very passionate about Welsh rugby and Cricket and the odd drink, with a curry! Contact Mike

committee-paul-evans
I am the webmaster for the BPJ website. I try and keep the site up to date, adding new features and information to help support the club. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the site, let me know. I started running with Black Pear Joggers around January 2012 after my wife Jo joined the club. I had never run before, but have found the club very supportive and friendly and have become quite addicted to it now! I usually run in groups with a pace of around 9min/miles and can usually be found in the bar after, especially when it is chip night! Contact Paul
