Runners of the Month - 2018-2019

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.

Daniel ReevesWelcome to our Runners of the Month for May and our first worthy winner is Daniel Reeves. Dan is a dedicated and hardworking athlete who puts an incredible amount of grit & determination into his training & racing. He is always cheerful & very supportive of his club team-mates at events and regularly turns out to support the Almosts even at races he is not able to compete in. He has recorded some notable PB performances of late too. At Tewkesbury Half by over 27 minutes and at Berkeley 10k. Dan is a dedicated parkrunner too & has truly mastered the Cheltenham course. Well done Dan & keep up the good work.

Rob RennellRob is our second, well deserved Runner of the Month for May. Rob is a keen and enthusiastic runner and has not let his visual impairdness hold him back or restrict him in his efforts to better his performances. He ran 4 half marathons last year at Swindon, Cheltenham, Gloucester and Stroud as well as numerous 10Ks and he is only a handful of runs away from 50 parkruns and the glory of the red T-Shirt. Rob is a great club supporter and always wears his vest with pride when he competes. Mention should also be made of Rob’s guide runners, especially Mark Medland who is in the photo with Rob above & has supported Rob all the way in his endeavours. Well done Rob

Dave RogersOur final Runner of the Month this May is Dave. He is truly flying at the moment but it is all down to his hard work & cranking out the big miles, his Strava feed is highly impressive! His dedication has paid off with a new marathon PB at Stratford Upon Avon two weeks again in a brilliant 3:11, which he then followed up in the heat of Liverpool this weekend with an equally brilliant 1:30 for the half. Dave goes about his running exploits in a very quiet manner but is a great clubman supporting his colleagues & encouraging them to do their best too. He is a pretty mean cyclist too, even when he’s forgotten his “clip-ins”! Well done Dave, tip-top running ….
