Chairman: 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!

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!
