The Most Improved Runner award is based on championship race results over the past two years, with a shortlist selected by the race managers / club captains.

Danielle Kenny
A member of the club for a few years, this last year we have seen big improvements in Danielle’s running - she has smashed her previous seasons half marathon times by around 7 minutes, her appearance at the South Cheshire 20, where she triumphed and again knocked minutes of the long race distance!

Sharna Gallagher
Sharna started racing with the club last year and has seen big improvements across all races distances particularly her 10k times, also running well within the NSRRA league and achieving 2nd in her age grade

Mark Coulthard
Consistent improvement across all distances and just a couple of races short of a placing in the Premier division.
David Nimmo
Finished 2018 in third position in Division 3, with improvement across the board.
John Putt
An overall 7% improvement over the year led to John taking Division 1 by storm.

Each year the club selects a charity that benefits from our social activities, sponsorship events and usually a percentage of any profits made from our races. The preference is for local organisations where our contribution makes an appreciable difference, rather than a national one.
All nominations will be considered with selection by the committee before the January awards evening.
