HBRH Member of the Month April 2017 – Carl Marchant

Hartlepool Burn Road Harrier’s Member of the Month has been nominated for many reasons, a good place to start is his “unparalleled positivity”. 


Carl is noted as having the most optimistic and cheerful disposition.  He is incredibly supportive of fellow runners, both within the club at Hartlepool’s Senior and Junior Parkruns.  He goes the extra mile, always saying hello, offering encouragement and dropping his pace to have a chat. 


Carl trains hard but is also an incredibly unselfish runner, ready to put the brakes on and take time to get to know other members and encourage their efforts....and he has a wealth of experience to share.  Having raced prolifically over twenty years ago, his best time over five miles is 27:50 and five kilometres is 15:15. Now as a Vet55 runner, he is challenging himself to increase his pace over shorter distances, recently securing a vet five mile personal best of 34:56.


Racing achievements aside, Carl has been nominated for his warmth, his generous spirit and his unwavering love of running and the running community.  People like Carl make Burn Road Harriers a great club and we are privileged to name him as our inaugural HBRH Member of the Month.
