Well done to all who competed !
28 October 2018GORDON & LIZ take the Senior Summer league honours.
Congratulations to everyone who took part in this year's Senior Summer League Road Running Championship awards.
Liz takes top spot
Liz Dawson is getting back to her best with some excellent performances this year and has managed to secure top spot in the ladies' championship. A fantastic achievement ! It was a close run league this year with Marie Marshall pushing Liz all the way in 2nd place just 5pts behind. In 3rd place Janet Priestley had some fine performances throughout the year whilst Linda Cameron pushed her all the way just one point behind in 4th place and with Louise Hopper making the top 5 this year has been a very competitive season.
Gordon scoops the lot.
In a fantastic effort Gordon Vivers managed to scoop both the Age Grade % and the Main Championship awards. Gordon managed to secure both top placings by keeping injury free and completing ALL of the 16 events. This is a fantastic achievment. Gordon managed to stay injury free and kept racing throughout the season picking up bonus points for completing all events. In the main championship Joe Boardman was pushed into 2nd place whilst Norman Johnstone pushed Joe all the way in 3rd. Both Grant Seaton (4th) and Richard Smith (5th) have both had fine seasons securing Pb's and completing their own goals.
In the Age grade championship Gordon again showed his form throughout the season and took the top spot with Liz Dawson just pipping Joe Boardman into 3rd. Norman Johnstone continues to impress with his 4th spot and Janet Priestley took 5th place overall.
