Farewell to Running Club stalwart

Thornbury Running Club started 2019 without one of their best known members. Recent chairman and head coach Craig Carscadden has moved to Cornwall to start a new job.

As well as guiding a legion of Thornbury runners to new personal bests and chairing the committee, Craig was awarded an MBE in the most recent end of year honours list in recognition of his services to athletes with disabilities and to the Paralympics. Craig competed on the track in the 5,000m at the 1996 Paralympic Games in Atlanta and coached athletes in the 2000 and 2004 Games.
