Honorary Lifetime Members


The club membership voted to introduce honorary Lifetime membership of the club, at the 2019 AGM, in order that the club can properly recognise individuals who have made a significant and valuable contribution to the club, community and sport of athletics in Glasgow.

Founders of our club, we are delighted to recognise both Jimmy and Sandra as our inaugural Life members, for their outstanding contribution to both the club, and athletics in Glasgow.

Jane and Oscar Wild

Jane and Oscar are both long-time members of the club, who joined at Jimmy and Sandra’s invitation in its first year.

Oscar was our first President, and instrumental in moving the club to our first long-term base at the Ski Centre, and leading coaching groups for many years.

Jane was a key coach and committee member, and has led many social efforts, most recently the successful Litter picking projects in our local community.

Oscar and Jane have also delivered our hugely popular, and important, Coronavirus lockdown Zoom workouts.

Lifetime membership was awarded to Jane and Oscar by the membership at the June 2020 AGM.

Robert also joined in the club’s first year, and later went on to serve as our third President, during which the club celebrated it’s 10th anniversary when  the club introduced its popular Bella 10k. Every subsequent running of the event has built on the foundations Robert put in place. With an impressive running career (including 20 marathons at sub 3h pace), Robert has also made a huge impact at the club supporting and coaching members.

Lifetime membership was awarded to Robert by the membership at the June 2020 AGM.
