Ken Bull of Coventry Godiva Harriers

Sad to report that Ken Bull of Coventry Godiva Harriers has passed away. 

Ken was made a Life Vice President of Warwickshire County AA in recognition of his service to our sport at County level but he is probably best known for his massive contribution to Coventry Godiva Harriers.

In his younger days Ken was a very good quality middle distance runner – his favourite event being the 880 yards (2 laps).. In later years he became a Club stalwart on the admin and coaching side of things. Particularly coaching of young athletes which contributed to the CGH pre-eminence in middle distance and endurance events.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Ken’s widow  Iris and their children Sharon and Alan.
