Clive Cooksey


I have been a member of 3 Clubs over the years, During the early 60’s Gilwern Harriers. During the 80’s, 90’s until March 2008 Club 69. This was when I was responsible for the Club changing it’s identity and we became Parc Bryn Bach Running Club relocating to the park and the use of all the facilities they offered.

The Club as grown beyond all recognition due to the forming of a proper management and elected committee and the introduction of a Club Constitution. I feel so proud to have been part of this transformation in the early years and have nothing but admiration for the members who took up the posts and responsibilities which has taken the Club to a whole new level both in competition and administration.
