Club Awards

The annual summer dinner provides the club with an ideal opportunity to celebrate our achievements.

Club Championship

This is an ongoing competition between club members and is assessed annually. 

The 2019-20 club championship was curtailed with the last few races being cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation and results were based on the races undertaken up to March 2020. The mens championship was won by Paul Sharples and the ladies championship was won by Becky Mullen, with Andrea Lyons taking her age category of over 55s. Congratulations to you all!

The rules and race selection for our 2020-21 club championship will be announced when the length of disruption we're facing becomes clearer and events are able to go ahead.

Long Membership Awards

We have many members who once they join up run with the club for many years. We recognise these individuals with long membership awards for 10, 20 and 30 years at our annual summer dinner with an engraved tankard (or other appropriate glass!).

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.
