About Us‎ > ‎


The Dog and Bear club is dedicated to John Simm the founder of both Bermuda Striders and the get up and run group. And to Paul Claridge the best race director Coventry Half Marathon has ever  had, without whom's influence this 'monster' would not have been born.
Without these two people Scooby and Baloo would not be running down the road that lead to the creation of this club. 
Thank guys.
