The Chris Smith Memorial Fund is a charity, set up by family members of Chris Smith, in his memory. Chris was a GB international mountain runner who died whilst out running in Scotland in 2020. His story touched many people who wanted to mark his life and contribution to the running community. The fund was set up to allow the money that had been so generously donated to be distributed to causes that would have meant a lot to Chris.
Chris was also a key figure in Middlesex athletics. He was our county cross country champion in 2013 and won silver or bronze medals on several occasions. He featured in most of our team successes at the Inter-Counties cross country and fell running championships.
The aim of the charity is to enable athletes and organisations to advance in running-related sports by providing grants to assist them in their preparation and participation in such activities. More details are in the attachment and at the following social media pages;
