I will be taking charge of our growing Field team with the main objective of increasing the engagement and participation in Field events along with integrating the Field team within the wider club. I am eager to take on the challenge and look forward to a fruitful year for the Field side of our Running & Athletics club.


Dan mladenovic - Treasurer

5th Year Medicine

Hi I’m Dan a fifth year medical student and now on my third year of committee and fifth year in the running club. I’ve spent many, many hours running in circles and I hope to use this experience to help others run around in circles too. I’ve also put a large amount of time into being injured, eating and drinking which does not go hand in hand with running well! Aside from this I hope to use the club finances to help everyone have a great time through the year and help us run all the events that make the club so special!


Peter parkinson - Home FixtureS Sec

3rd year Medicine

I am one of this year’s Home Fixture Secretaries along with Hannah & I am excited to be a part of the committee for the first time! I will be organising some of UOLRAC’s biggest events that we put on throughout the year, including Colour Run, Alumni Ball and the Weekend Away. As well as this, I will be helping to run the training sessions that take place during the week and support my fellow committee members with their roles.
