All
How did you start running?: 
Introduced to Cardiff parkrun by a friend and so the story goes. Came to Newport for their first parkrun and never left. Soon afterwards the brothers Grimm (Chris & Nick Davies) convinced me to give a Lliswerry training session a go...and now they can't get rid of me! I have recently (May 16) qualified as a LiRF so if you want any hints or tips on getting into running or what Lliswerry can do for you, just ask.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Have fun, it is the most important aspect.

How did you start running?: 
Started doing a couch to 5K program on a treadmill at home, then my friend Jacko persuaded me to go to parkrun at Tredegar House. I managed to make it around without stopping and have had the running bug ever since.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Get to a parkrun and enjoy the experience. Try and attend the club training sessions to meet people with similar abilities. If you feel up for it enter a few local races. Lliswerry is a friendly club so if you have any questions or concerns then just ask.

What's your favourite running surface?: 
Road
How did you start running?: 
<p>Running away from my Mom ;-) I ran both XC and 1500m from the age of 11. I&#39;d run plenty of races before joining, but found the speedwork difficult to do on my own. I chatted to few members at Newport parkrun, came down and tried a session and the rest is history!</p>
Any message to newcomers?: 
<p>Joining Lliswerry will be the best running decision you can make. The support from clubmates, at training, parkrun, races and during injuries really is incredible. Also, if you are a lady, we are always looking for more ladies of all abilities to come and join our XC and road teams :-)</p>

Road definately not mud!!
How did you start running?: 
As a supplement to football training when I was a young lad. Started running for the sake of running quite recently. It gets you hooked!!
Any message to newcomers?: 
Don't think because its a running club you have to be an elite athlete. Lliswerry caters for all abilities and encourages everyone. My advice? Keep to tarmac.

How long have you been running?:

What's your favourite running surface?: 
Trail or road or mountain or anywhere.
How did you start running?: 
I needed to get fitter to complete the National 3 Peaks Challenge. Absolutely hated it when I started....went on to complete Cardiff Half and started parkrun which naturally led to joining the club. This led to marathons and beyond.
Any message to newcomers?: 
Don't use the phrase "I'm not fast enough to join a club" If you want an addiction, this is one of the good ones.
