Lindsay Johnson

Club Secretary

Cathy Martin









John Marshall

John joined the club in 1998 after running a number of races and meeting a persuasive member that said running in a club is easier, which turned out to be the case. An accountant by profession meant John was voted by members into the role of treasurer in 2000, in which he has remained to date.  John has been very active on the committee since that time and has seen the club grow in numbers and increase its presence in the running world.

He enjoys all types of running from road, track, cross country to the fells and wherever he goes, whether holiday or work takes a pair of trainers and running kit to explore the local area and if possible with a local running club.

Each race has its own high and low points but those with a little difference include the Ullswater Challenge, Barcelona New Years Eve 10k, Dublin marathon, Breidden Hills fell race in Wales and of course the relays where you feel so much more part of a team.

Apart from a recent injury, from which he is recovering, John's running has improved with age and has run many PB's in the last couple of years, together with finally starting to win some age category prizes.

A significant achievement was accumulating the most points for the Vets season 2012 - where his name now appears on the trophy alongside some very esteemed runners on the race scene!

 Club Captain


Darren Barham: 

Darren has been running  since Summer 2014 when he joined Pudsey Pacers
as a complete running novice. Since that time he has taken part in many
local running events and races.  He really enjoyed participating in
the West Yorkshire Winter League and notes this as one of the main
motivators to continue running.   After the Calderdale Way Relay Darren
acquired the nickname ‘Basher’ after the official results had him down as
Darren Basham, which has stuck ever since.  He has no notable running
achievements yet - but is ever optimistic.

Jon Prideaux

Jon is an experienced track and field competitor having started out as a sprinter and gradually progressed to middle distance running, and then road and cross country events.  He started competing in 1991 and his notable achievements include winning the 400m at the Yorkshire Vets Championship and finishing 4th in the West Yorkshire Winter League.  Jon highlights the Yorkshireman half marathon as one of his favourite events, as on one occasion he was tested to extreme mental and physical boundaries and this provided him with future confidence.


 Ordinary Members




Dave Burdon

I joined the club in Sept 2002 after doing Guiseley Gallop, Leeds Half Marathon and then Pudsey 10k earlier that summer. I was looking for a club and figured if I joined Pudsey I wouldn’t have to do the 10k again seeing as we always need marshals for the event! I love all aspects of the club - the running, the people, and the great spirit and camaraderie that runs within. I particularly like the coaching that I am involved in and also arranging team events such as the relays the club participates in. 

 The best local race for me is the Leeds Half Marathon and I also like the Bradford Millennium Way Relay as it is a great team event.  I have always enjoyed the Northumberland Coastal Run and 2013 will always stay in my mind as one of the most memorable because of the weather and the fact we had so many Pacers there.  I have also successfully completed a few marathons and my favourite is Dublin where I achieved my PB in 2007.

Graeme Tiffany

Graeme has been running since a teenager and began participating in fell races and mountain navigation events from the age of 18. Notable achievements include several completions of the Karrimor Mountain Marathon Elite class and a sub 5 hour Haworth Hobble, of which he offers an interesting anecdote: “The race advertised ‘showers available but getting colder as the day goes on’. My partner and I were 8th out of 200+ pairs and they were already freezing.”
