Buckley Runners Annual Presentation of Awards

The annual presentation night will be held at The Running Hare on Tuesday 4th June from 8.00 onwards. We will eat first (usual menu) with the presentation of awards starting about 9.00.
The pub will set aside an area for us, but I need to give them an indication of numbers. I am going in at lunchtime this Friday (31st) to confirm arrangements. Please could you let me know before then if you are intending to go. 
Just a reminder of the awards:
  • Borders League (10 men and 4 ladies)
  • Cross Country (6 men and 4 ladies)
  • Club Championship (top 3 overall)
  • The Members award
The winner of the Annual Members award is selected on the night. It goes to a club member who has made a significant contribution to the club, not necessarily by winning lots of races or trophies but by what they have put into the club to make it the continuing success it is. Nomination (not voting) slips will be passed out on the night but I am happy to receive nominations by email up to Monday 3rd. If you cannot be there to nominate on the evening please email the name and explain in no more than 20 words why this person deserves the award (nominations cannot be accepted without a reason!)
Many thanks

Llangynhafal Loop

Good turnout from the club at this long-established local fell race. This year, a particularly strong field as it was a counter in the Welsh and North Wales Champs. Excellent performances by Jez (7th) and Simon Edwards (12th). Other finishers included Simon R (20th), Jeff (48th), Dawn (81st), John M (83rd), Paul D (84th), Jack (139th)

Manchester Marathon

Simon Roberts failed to break 2:50 on this flat course last Sunday, when the wheels came off in classic fashion at mile 20 as the race headed out into bleak open fields and a headwind. Lost 4-5 minutes to finish in 2:54:01 (gun time). Good race, though, which might become a useful London alternative in future.
