Chair

Ellie BrownMy athletics journey began aged 11 at Winchester AC competing at school and county level in long jump and 800m. I became an active member of Kent AC 15 years ago. I have served on the committee as Women’s cross-country secretary for the past ten years and currently hold the position of Club President. I am a Level 2 Performance Coach, committed to widening participation and growing club membership. My children were members of Cambridge Harriers where I held the position as team manager for young athletes: my son still competes as a Javelin thrower.

I joined the London Regional Council as a co-opted member in 2014 and have been a full council member for the past two years.

My professional experience started in the restaurant business, where I was a board director of Jamies plc, combining organisational management, strategic leadership, and communications – including public speaking.

In 2002 I set up a business, based in my community, combining my love of sport and fitness with my business expertise. I have been instrumental in developing, supporting and delivering on numerous health and fitness initiatives designed to engage women, families and young people. In 2012 I received a Council Civic Award in recognition of my contribution to the community. I continue to train and compete in a range of events.

It is a privilege to be able to bring my passion for athletics and running together with my unique mix of experience as a competitor, coach, community organiser and strategic leader to serve the sport.
