Club Chairman

G Aitken

Graham Aitken

Occasional runner back in my 20’s however only started really taking things seriously the past 2 years.  Ended up obsessed and now suddenly Chairman of the Club (still not sure how that happened haha).   Mostly been running local 10ks and hill races with limited success however slowly working on that!

Main aims for this year is to get sub 37 for 10k (currently 38.08 after Nairn) and complete my first marathon.  Although I’ve decided to do Lairig Ghru as my first so who knows how that will go (my prediction…terrible haha)  Additionally the Devil of Deeside race(s) and the Ring of Steall Skyrace are my main focus for training.  Other than that i’ll be popping up at hill races here and there and seeing if i can get anywhere near the top 10!

Training: Due to my limited running History I have yet to get any full qualifications for coaching although working on that ASAP.  However i am a complete statto when it comes to my own training so spreadsheets, numbers, pace, miles are all logged and every running blog is read haha

Main aim for the club is to help it grow and become successful in the area.  We already have a great group of runners however we want to build on that and help inspire and improve our members through the training and knowledge base we have!

Although ultimately its all about hitting the hills and enjoying yourself 🙂
