The 5k Run Leader team will comprise Debbie Davis, Richard Davis, Emma Daveye and Teresa Mitchell, who have explained their reasons for getting involved.
Richard said: “I get so much enjoyment from running and have made so many friends. I really want to help others take those first steps.”
Debbie said: “I’m really keen to see people’s journey and achievements and will be there to cheer them on at Eastbourne 5k parkrun.”
Emma added: “I wasn’t very good at sports at school but decided to do the Couch to 5k programme five years ago. I did it on my own but it would have been so much easier and more fun to be part of a group. I went on to join Eastbourne Rovers and have made so many friends there.”
Mike Thompson, chairman of Eastbourne Rovers AC, said: “What a great programme – running for me has been so positive for my physical and mental well being. As 2022 unfolds, we’re all in need of the a boost, whatever our levels of ability. This programme aims to help people achieve their goals.
“We’re also linked in to local GP services and Eastbourne 5K parkrun which is a real plus.”
