Club Member of the Month
Club Member of the Month for September goes to Patrick Hinchliffe. Patrick has enthusiastically taken part in every activity organised by the club over the lockdown period, as well as every effort session, be it in person or virtually. He has also managed to take a huge chunk off his 5k time.
Club Member of the Month for August is Pete Banks, for completing the Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee, and then turning around (in a virtual sense) and running it again, for an incredible total of 1270 miles in four months – around ten miles per day!
CMOTM for July is Karen Flowers, for being the first WRC lady to complete the GVRAT Challenge by her target date of 20th July, and easily before the deadline of 31st August, and for continually organising group runs throughout lockdown, including as many members as possible.
CMOTM for June is Adam Regan, for completing 200 miles of running during the month and for his performance in the Phoenix 24 Hour Virtual Race where he ran an impressive 36 miles.
Despite being very new to running, Shannon chose to sign up to the Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee. She started off walking many of the 36 miles per week required to finish the challenge and has gradually increased the amount of running she does. Having never run more than a 10k before, she has now managed several long runs, and in May she quadrupled her previous highest monthly mileage.
Congratulations to Gerry Greenwold on being Club Member of the Month for April, for his amazing comeback to running after his diagnosis and treatment for Cancer.
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
