He is a backup to the president when Jay is unavailable.

Committee Member

John Dobson.

John is a former vice-president, Life Member and Melbourne Marathon Spartan Legend. He has rejoined the committee after a year away, and we are glad to hear his wise words again.

Treasurer

Rod Bayley.

Responsible for the finances of the club. Has been doing a lot of work recently optimising our stocks of current singlets, and helping sell our older singlets.


Immediate Past President

John Dean was president for several years.

John is trying, not altogether successfully, to reduce his involvement with day to day activities but has immense experience of the running of club. He can always be relied upon to produce a list of actions needed, from organisation of chairs for the AGM to arranging provision of tent at the marathon finish.

Committee Member

John Kaparelis

John is a 25 year Spartan in his second term on the committee. He brings valuable business experience, and considerable energy, with him. We are already beginning to profit from his considerable energy.


Secretary

Committee Member

Colin Silcock-Delaney has been a member of the committee for several years.

He lives in the country and can’t always attend committee meetings. However, he always ensures that he is available to help at the AGM, and was a constant presence at our Expo tent and managed the tent at the finish from early in the morning to the end of the day.

Cath Bombardieri has been a member of the committee for four years.

Cath looks after our database and is well on the way to having every run for every member recorded.
