Meet the members: Ian Cooke

How long have you been a member of Queen’s Park Harriers?

I joined in autumn last year but I have wanted to be part of the club for a few years. I thought the hoops looked great as they sped around Gladstone parkrun.

What's the best thing about running?

As a runner who needs a guide to accompany me, I am lucky enough to meet some lovely people who will run around with me and keep the world safe from me.

What's your favourite running event?

I liked the Woking half marathon. They gave out ice creams at the ten mile mark.

What else do you do?

I work in the City and try to live a blameless life. Sometimes I achieve this.

Tell us something surprising about yourself that other members may not know.

Anthea Turner has cooked me dinner twice. It was chili con carne both times.
