About the Founder

Daniel Chaplen

Teachers’ Run Club Founder

Hi, I’m Dan and thanks for taking the time to visit TRC!

Over the last 13 years I have taught PE at a large primary school in Luton and in recent years switched my focus to staff and the wider community, helping them to take on their own active challenges and use their journey to motivate and inspire others.

My aim is to help create and share as many active opportunities for school staff members as possible and use these stories to show children and young people that they too can achieve their goals.

Over the last 6 years I have helped to create multiple staff challenges including staff fun runs, across country bike rides and town wide virtual challenges. All raising money and awareness for various charities, helping staff realise their potential and encouraging children and their families to get active along side their teachers.

With the increased number of school staff exploring running for their exercise during lockdown Teachers’ Run Club was born. A safe space for school staff to share their stories, ask questions to likeminded people, celebrate success and hopefully inspire others to get their running shoes on!

I would love the chance to work with your school, please see what we are working on this year here and get in touch if you would like me to help you build an active culture within your school community!
