Claire Bass C1202, elected Chair at the January 2024 AGM, introduces herself:

“As a long distance runner I have enjoyed multiple trail races where I found endurance was my preferred sport. I have competed in many European countries over the past 20 years. I came late to race walking and mix this with ultra running, outdoor swimming and yoga, Pilates and weight training.

I am a member of the LDWA and enjoy the 100 mile challenges and am always up for a new Centurion. I have completed 3 now: Netherlands, IOM & Germany. I have also enjoyed joining the Dutch on several 100 mile events and enjoy the international status of the Centurion Groups.

I have a large family all over the world, work full time in healthcare and am a Trustee of a wild life care farm locally. I hope to bring my professional experience to the Centurions and provide a greater platform for old & new members to continue this wonderful tradition that many have committed to tirelessly to before me”.
