The Committee of Knowle and Dorridge Running Club meets at least six times a year. Dates for Committee meetings are published on the Club Calender.

The Committee will always be happy to hear from members who have ideas and suggestions about how we can improve our Club. You will find that Committee members are at most Club nights and runs. Alternatively, you can contact the Club Officials via email at

Darren John
Member since October 2014. Serves as Chairperson and Web-Gopher. Races a ridiculous amount and is famous for fracturing his hip on Longdon road during the Knowle Fun Run. Complete stats geek and running obsessive.
Jo Tork
Jo does all the boring stuff like minutes and entering you in races and leagues. Secretary keeps everything ticking behind the scenes. Basically holds everything together.
Isabel Arthur
Membership Secretary

Isabel is our resident photographer. If you are running in K&D vests there is every chance Isabel will capture you. Any bad pictures of you are all your fault though. If you are going to pull funny faces like that... Isabel will photoshop your pictures to make you look worse if you don't pay your subs!

Jan Hornby

From 0-3 to marathoner and now holder of the keys to the bank vault. Jan has risen through the ranks and is now charged with making sure the Chairperson doesn't spend all the funds on peanut butter and a silver bird bath. 

Torsten Roesler
Men's Team Captain
The captain of the good ship Men. Our European import. Torsten is a regular on the WRRL circuit and usually found up near the front (ish) of the pack. Torsten became captain in 2017. Men. He is your guy. If you want to race speak to TR. It's like when Chelsea signed Ballack.
Rosie Marsh
Women's Team Captain

Progressing right through to the sharp end Rosie has made massive strides; she'll no doubt be replicating this with our women's team. She'll convince you to do Cross Country (which you'll love!) and Road Relays (which you'll love!) and no doubt help our women progress at the same rate she has.

Chris Sharp
Men's Team Vice-Captain

Club Show Pony and multiple record holder, Chris is now tasked with organising the sharp end and helping fine tune our men's performance division into an elite, crack force that can challenge for medals at regional meets and put on a jolly good show at Nationals.

Mark Cordiner-Barton
Arden 9 Race Co-ordinator
King of the Arden 9. Mark uses his military background to ensure our flagship event, The Arden 9, happens every year. Mark does a fantastic job with his team of Arden 9 minions to ensure everything runs smoothly. An Action Man who enjoys the odd Ultra.
Steve Pensom
Committee Member
Relatively new to the club but jumped at the chance to be on the committee. Steve has all the makings of a future social secretary. Has done extensive research on The Forest in Dorridge.
Jo Hitchcock
Run Leader Co-ordinator

The liasion between run leaders, club members, committee and Hannah England. A key cog in making sure Wednesdays go smoothly. Jo is also famous for her epic Wednesday trail runs during the summer. You'll have no idea where you go but you'll love it!

Fiona Holland
Committee Member
Doesn't have Facebook so I couldn't nick a decent picture. Doesn't have Facebook. God that sounds like a pleasant way of life. Jo and Fiona are a force of nature when combined. Like Power Rangers.
Katie Price
Wellbeing Officer

Katie is taking on a new post in the club - Wellbeing Officer. The Wellbeing Officer will be an independent member responsible for supporting members who may encounter issues in the club or have other wellbeing concerns they may wish to discuss with a confidential, independent person. Will work with, but not for the committee.
