September’s CMOTM is Celine Elson, for her excellent recent progress, and for her commitment to the club. Celine had recently volunteered to pace at the Maldon Parkrun when she heard that the Cross Country relay team were missing a team member. Not wanting to let anybody down, Celine raced from one event to the other and stepped in to run the relay at short notice.
Our other fantastic nominees for September were:
Stephen Alder – For all his work in making sure the Essex Way Relay was successful. This involved both organising our leg and dealing with last minute changes to our teams.
Kerry Townsend – For her run at the Ingatestone 5 miles which was her fastest 5 miles for 6 years.
Peter Coates – Pete has had an amazing season, going from strength to strength with PBs and club records at several races. This culminated in a stunning performance at the Pleshey half marathon, where he broke the club record and won the County Champs Grand Prix.
Andrew Smith – for taking on back to back legs at the Essex Way and for being part of the team WRC win at the Maldon Half.
The WRC Team of Andrew Smith/Dan Griffiths/Stephen Sawyer/Sam Hadjer – For Winning the Team Prize at the Maldon Half Marathon.
