Isabelle Dormer

Age or Running Category:


How long have you been running?

20 years plus

Why do you run?

 The enjoyment and to meet friends  to try and maintain an element of fitness.

Describe your favourite run:

From my house up to Draycott Sleights and further. No matter what the weather or time of year it is always a fantastic view and an immense pleasure to look at and feel our wonderful countryside.

Do you take part in races? If so what distance/terrain?

Only compete in the Weston Xmas Cracker. 10 k is about my limit. I prefer off road, even with the climb.

What is your greatest running achievement?

 Just to keep going I suppose but it was a great sense of achievement competing in several Cub Grizzly events a few years ago now.  

How long have you been a member of Cheddar Running Club?

 17 years  


Why did you join Cheddar Running Club?

 To help me return to running and fitness, and then I realised how much more “fun” and motivating it was. Despite not being the fastest or fittest the sense of achievement after each session is always great.  

How has Cheddar Running Club helped you and your running?

 Just keeps me going and I enjoy the friends and social outlet I get from continuing my membership.  Long may it last.  

What would you say to anyone thinking of joining the club?

Don’t think twice, if you don’t try it you may be missing out on a lot more than just running faster.
