How Does the Committee Work?
The Committee consists of 12 to 15 volunteer members, including three Officers and nine to twelve Ordinary Representatives. All the positions are elected each year at the Club Annual General Meeting (AGM).

General roles and responsibilities of the Committee
The role of the Committee is to make decisions on behalf of the members to ensure the club is run properly. This includes facilitating activities that club members want to do and ensuring that we do everything we are legally and officially obliged to do as a club.
Given the size of the club and range of activities provided, Committee members work with a variety of additional volunteers in sub-roles to organise, co-ordinate and provide these different activities for members.
If you are interested in joining the Committee or volunteering for other roles within the club, contact the relevant Committee member via the Committee contacts page.
The three Officer positions are Chairman, Honorary Treasurer and Honorary Secretary.
They are responsible for ensuring that, as a club, we adhere to our legal and official obligations. This primarily means following the rules as set out by the national and regional governing bodies which administer our sport (e.g. UK Athletics (UKA), British Triathlon Federation (BTF), etc.), and the general rules of running a non-profit or membership organisation, which include having our own set of club rules and bye-laws.
The Committee has 12 ordinary members whose roles are:
- Endurance Running
- Race Organisation
- Junior Section Coordinator
- Club Kit
- Strategic Partnerships
- Club Runs and Mentoring
The Representatives are responsible for overseeing activities within certain areas of the club (e.g. athletics). These are primarily the core activities that have been developed by the membership over time. Representatives are also available as the point of contact for members for their area, whether to raise a query, address an issue or consider a new idea or activity for the club.
