In 2016 Stewart Flatt and Gordon Mitchell received 30 year long service awards and Andrea Lyons a 20 year award, photo below showing the proud recipients putting their engraved tankards and glasses to good use!

Social Activities

We don’t just run together, we also get together for social events. There are two club dinners each year which are open to all runners and their partners; one during the summer where the club awards are presented and of course a Christmas do. We also arrange occasional club trips to races.
