Runner of the Month

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.

Vicky KenndyWe've been very impressed by Vicky's dedication to her running - particularly her marathons. Vicky is the first female Almost Athlete to have completed all 6 Marathon Majors (London, Berlin, Boston, New York, Chicago and Tokyo)! Equally proficient at all distances, she was also part of the winning team at the Berkeley 20 mile race. Well done Vicky!

PrashCongratulations to Prashanth Kumar Sripathi (Prash) for his fantastic run at the Manchester marathon where he managed to knock a magnificent 26 minutes off his previous personal best to finish in 3.01.08. Prash has been training hard and constantly improving - he was also the first male Almost home at the recent Cleevewold. Well done Prash!

Mark EaversMark was nominated this month, not only for his enthusiasm for running but also for his involvement in charity work (he recently had that famous bear shaved off for a fundraising cause!) and, in particular, for his assistance to visually impaired runners. Well done Mark!

Deb CartlidgeA big pat on the back this month to Deb Cartlidge for her consistent hard work and dedicated training. Deb attends club sessions regularly and really enjoys her running. Her hard work paid off recently at the very hot and hilly Torremolinos half marathon where she was first Almost lady home. Well done Deb!
