Hi, my name’s Alison Dick.

I began my running journey in July 2015 to get back fit after an operation. I’d not done much exercise for about 7 years. I started with a couch to 5k running app, which I managed alone and enjoyed it. After running alone through last winter and feeling apprehensive about winter nights and running in the dark I decided to look for a running club.

I joined Red Rose Road Runners in October and what a warm welcome I have had, everyone is so friendly and encouraging. Now I’m excited about running in the dark!!
Other runners have encouraged me to sign up to races and I have a few 10k’s to look forward to and also the Great North run in aid of St Catherine’s hospice.

Thanks all for you kindness and encouragement.
