Katie Taggart

January 2019


This month the award for Strider of the Month goes to Katie Taggart.


“Katie has managed to run nearly everyday for the last few years and no matter how jetlagged she is, she still gets out.  She always wears the Striders vest with pride as she pops up in various far flung races.  As well as all the training and racing she does, she is also one of the Pennington Flash Park Run directors and organiser of the Flash in the Park events.  She’s always friendly, welcoming and encouraging to everyone at the club.  She’s a great role model and great asset to the club.”


Well done Katie – keep up the good work!
