Shelly Parker

I'm club secretary and you can get in touch with me for any matters relating to the club, including membership queries. We are a free social running club but you have the option to register as a competitive athlete and affiliate to the club (this costs £19 per year which goes to England Athletics). I discovered my love for running whilst training for Tough Mudder in 2018 and joined the Lakers in the spring of 2019. There's something so special about this club, the support is amazing and I have met some inspirational people. I enjoy trail running and winter cross-country. My proudest achievement to date is completing Manchester Marathon in April 2022. Although I'm not the fastest, I like to push myself and enjoy a good race! I like to try new races and enjoy adventures, new experiences and testing my limits!
