About Us

Gary Craine - Chairman 2018/19

Gary first moved to Leamington Spa in 2001, and lives locally with his wife and two daughters. Having first become involved with Leamington Round Table (LRT) in 2015, Gary says his main reasons were to meet new, like-minded people in the local area, have some fun, and make a really positive difference in the community. So far, Gary says he’s achieving all three and would encourage others to get involved and #DOMORE. Getting the opportunity to be Race Director for the Regency 10k in 2017 and 2018 was a huge privilege and new challenge.
