Runners of the Month - 2019-2020
Every 4-6 weeks or so the committee nominate one or two Runners of the Month - these are people who we feel have worked hard and improved in some way, whether that is by running their first 5K, coming back from injury or completing a longer event in an exceptional time. At the end of the year, at the club AGM, members have the opportunity to choose a male and female Runner of the Year by voting for the various Runners of the Month.

Suzy is our first ROTM for May. Suzy won one of our club members places for the 2019 Virgin London marathon and once she had her place she knuckled down to a disciplined winter training regime to ensure she shone in her second time on the streets of the capital. Come April she ran a fabulous and very measured race & crossed the line comfortably with the usual huge smile on her face. Suzy is always highly supportive of her club mates, and outside of her running she loves her bike too; she recently completed an 80-mile charity ride. Well done Suzy, keep smiling …
Neil is our 2nd & final ROTM for May. Neil competes exceptionally well at all distances. At the recent Newport Marathon he set himself a new PB target of 3:45, which following his solid winter/spring training he went one better, finishing in 3:44 & smashing his previous best by more than 12 minutes . He recently set new PBs for the course at Berkeley & Northleach 10Ks following Newport. Neil is also a keen triathlete often competing with family Tring too. Most recently he picked up a category win at Gloucester Tri on Sunday. Neil also rocks the John McEnroe headband better than anyone we know. Keep it up Neil……
