Health and safety and welfare officer

Nancy Scott

Nancy is a winner, and while she doesn’t need a trophy to tell her this, she is this year’s proud holder of the Josh Carr Award for Winning. As one of the club’s two Welfare Reps, Nancy will be using her winning ways to help all Hareys win on the welfare side of things. Approachable, smiley and friendly, Nancy would also easily win the Nicest Harey award if the club had one. She is a firm believer in the fact that running should above all be fun, since at the end of the day we do it to enjoy ourselves. Nancy is always on hand to impart some welfare words of wisdom to fellow Hareys, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with her, whatever your wellbeing concerns may be whether running-related or not. She will also be liaising with our sports therapist Leslie to organise the Club’s dedicated physio slots and aiming to minimise injuries within the club, which comes naturally to her as a fourth-year medic. Look out for Nancy’s weekly Wednesday welfare email with its exciting new Song of the Week feature, which is sure to put a spring in your step (top tunes given a mention thus far include “The Ketchup Song” and “Everything Is Awesome!!!”)!

James Coxon

Wimbledon Common. Wimbledon Common. Wimbledon Common. Now that he is presumably cowering behind the sofa, I can say what I really feel about James Coxon. Having said that, I’m not sure it really matters what I say because he will complain about it regardless. A man born to be a welfare officer because he likes things just so. Mud: bad for welfare. Wind: bad for welfare. Rain, you guessed it: bad for welfare. The model of consistency, his journey from self-confessed NARP to the very pinnacle of the sport was completed when he won the much coveted “Quad of the Year” award in 2019. A true rags to riches tale if ever there was one, the feature length film is due to be released in the fall of 2021 with Coxon insisting it last for no longer than 8 and a bit minutes. Anything longer is too long and is bad for welfare.
