About the committee

Neil Aitken - Honorary Chairman

Loves:
My boy Jakie, racing, beer & Chasers obviously!
Hates:
Sitting still and not having shoes on :-)
Day job: Director in Sports Travel 

Since the formation of Clapham Chasers I’ve loved working with fellow club and committee members to meet the challenges of our rapidly developing club. One day we will hopefully be one of the most reputable running and triathlon clubs in the country. 

My commitments at home mean I can’t go to the volume of sessions I used to but you can usually see me coaching at the track on Tuesday. Outside of Chasers I’m also with Embrace Sports and have the privilege of coaching and training with many Chasers there too.
Andy Wyatt - Honorary Treasurer

Loves: Cycling, snowboarding, mountains, maps, exploring, beer, snacks

Hates: Punctures, inconsiderate road users, litter

Day Job: Finance Business Partner

Having joined the Chasers in 2012 with a view to doing triathlon, it wasn’t long until I discovered I really didn’t like open water, wasn’t overly keen on swimming or running or early mornings and that cycling was great.  However, after three years of dedicated cycling, I finally managed two sprint and one middle distance triathlon over the course of one summer, where I had a proper panic attack at the start of swim. Once I realised no-one was coming to help, and that I could just about put my feet on the bottom of the lake, I got on with it, even enjoying the swim, and completed my first and last middle distance triathlon! At some stage the Chaser tri-suit, which still fits, will probably come out of retirement. Until then, I enjoy studying maps of Surrey and Kent, trying to figure out ways to make the same old roads somehow different, and every now and again finding a whole new road.  I actually quite like trail running, and swimming in perfect, big, largely empty 5ft deep swimming vestibules.

Through the Chasers I’ve met loads of new friends, been to loads of new places and had loads of great times and more than a few beers and snacks. When the opportunity to become treasurer came up, combining my love of numbers, spreadsheets & Chasers, I couldn’t believe my luck and jumped at the opportunity to give back to our club & community. I’m still working on the proposal for a snack budget.

Liz Milsom - Honorary Secretary

Loves: Running, cycling and lie-ins
Hates: Commuting - but now I run and cycle, I love it!
Day Job: Innovation Programme Manager

I joined the Clapham Chasers in 2011 after I moved and it became my local club. I had been a member of another running club and the difference was amazing! The Chasers are the most friendly, inclusive and supportive group of people you could hope to meet. I value that all abilities are welcome and have watched, in the five years that I’ve been a member, the club grow to an organisation that offers an amazing range of activities and events: both sporting and social! I recognise that most of this is done through people volunteering their time, enthusiasm and passion for running, cycling, swimming and triathlon.

Taking part and getting involved with any Chasers event is rewarding and enjoyable, and is an important part of my life and now I'm also proud to be able to give back some time via the Committee.

Seb Jones - Men's running, and Welfare Officer

Loves: running, red wine, and prog metal... and anything combining any or all of these. 

Day job: music/sports lawyer. 

I joined Chasers back in 2012, and have spent the last few years discovering how inclusive and competitive the club is. I love trail running (and anything running-related), and have increasingly focused on longer and longer distances, ideally in the mountains, to hide/justify my slower times. We have such a wealth of talent in the club, and I am thrilled to be doing what I can to support running at every distance, from track-level to 100miles.

Jo Greening - Social Secretary


Loves: Post-activity beverages, fancy dress, cheesy music, steak, kit and races 

Day Job: Dietitian 

I actually did very little in the first few years as a Chaser but having made the decision to sign up for a 70.3 I decided I should probably start going to more sessions (I'd previously gone to one a year) and in doing so I ended up making many amazing friends and wondering why I hadn't become involved sooner.  I had always thought I wasn't good enough to join a running and triathlon club but discovered that Chasers is for everyone. I started going along to the Sunday rides in January but somehow found myself racing at Herne Hill Velodrome and taking part in Red Bull Timelaps that same year. I also learnt that I don't have to lift my heart rate monitor over my head to remove it...

Hope to see you at the next Social! 

Bronwyn Garrett - Risk Management 

Gavin Brandie - Communications and Publicity
