Club Member of the Month
Club Member of the Month for March goes to Scott Darney, for devising and organising the Social Distancing Championship. This goes above and beyond his coaching role and has given everyone a reason to go out running at a time when most other local clubs seem to have capitulated.
February’s Club Member of the Month is Sandy Karl for her fantastic performance at the Dubai Ironman 70.3!
January’s Club Member of the Month is Vicki Riley, for her impressive performance at the Writtle X-Country; finishing in 22nd place and being Witham’s first scoring lady
Goes to Bill Smythe for delivering a very successful BD5 this year, despite trying circumstances.
Goes to Owen Dare for his New York marathon performance in a time of 3 hours 6 minutes.
Goes to Jason Lilley for PBs at Southend 10k, Tiptree 10m and Wix 5m plus being supportive and friendly to all runners and club members
Goes to Jodee Mayer for volunteering to start the Intro to Running Course again, for also completing the Outrun 12 (17.14 miles) and Colne Engaine 5 the following day! Generally, Jodee has become a real asset to the club.
Goes to Lee Blake for putting the disappointment of the weather cancelling the bike leg of his Outlaw Ironman Race behind him to complete the Midnight Man Ironman Overnight Distance Race
Goes to Marc Underdown & Brigid Wallen for winning the mixed pairs at the Spitfire Scramble and for the incredible effort they both put in to achieve it. They both showed amazing spirit and determination to complete a combined total of over 142 miles in the 24 hours.
Goes to Ruth Mizon for her continued improvement at the Summer 5Ks and for another month of completing her challenge of 100 miles a month
Goes to Ross Silverton for being and all-round outstanding member of the club. During the month he raced at the Colchester 10k, Great Baddow 10 Mile, Burnham 10k, HBO 10k and JR 5k Race 2 – bagging some age group silverware in the process and managing to fit in some Tuesday pub runs as well!
Goes to Charlotte Roberts for her double marathons at Manchester and London while going through a tough time, I am sure the ‘appreciation not expectation’ mantra will help us all when the going gets tough.
