Name: Nigel Goodwin

Role: Website communications

Athletic interests: I have been involved and interested in athletics since my youth, mainly in middle and long distance and cross country. My abilities have always been moderate, but that does not prevent me from enjoying the camaraderie and trying to do my best. I have been a member of Herne Hill Harriers since around 2010, and joining the club has enhanced my running abilities compared with training alone. I am currently responsible for keeping the website running smoothly, maintaining it as a historic record and a focus for club information, and also am more than happy to help any members post information of interest. I sometimes help officiate at home athletics meetings.

Name: Fiona Brown

Role: parent representative

Athletic interests:  Having engaged in middle distance running for a northern club and then a southern university for 10 years spanning the 1980s, I gratefully gave up competing at 21, only to return to the sport vicariously when first one and then the other daughter joined Herne Hill in 2011/2 as U13Gs. I have much preferred watching them experience the highs and lows of competitive effort than I did myself. They have gained a huge amount from being club members. They are now U23/U20W and still regularly race in their red and black vests.

Name: Olivia Zeltner

Role: Committee Member

Athletic interests: I began running back in the USA at the age of 11, I competed in middle school and high school track and cross country, but took a break when I went to university. Running was picked back up again when I moved to London in 2013 and joined HHH the following year. I train primarily with Geoff’s group and participate in long distance events ranging from the 5,000 on the track to cross-country and marathons. I am interested in making the club a more inclusive space, and hold a UKA certification in guide running.

Name: Ian Jack

Role: Safeguarding

Athletic interests: My son and daughter both joined the HHH youth team in late 2017, so under peer pressure I followed them into the Club in 2018. I’ve been running marathons since 2012 but had not been a member of a running club before (incidentally I’ve taken 17 minutes off my marathon time since joining HHH and would recommend it to anyone). I also like ultra distances and am currently ranked 12th in Britain for the ’24 hour running’ discipline (there are 2 races a year around a 400m track, it’s niche). I am often marshalling or tail-running with the youth middle distance group on Streatham Common (during x-country season) or at Tooting track on Tuesday evenings.
