Dear Harriers, it’s the Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), Awards Evening and Xmas Party at The Dome on Saturday 9th December. More information on the timings and schedule to follow in the coming weeks, but for now we need your….

Award nominations!

During the awards section of the evening we’ll be presenting the Club trophies for 2023, and this will culminate with the awards for Runner of the Year (Female) and Runner of the Year (Male), and Harrier of the Year. This is where we ask you for your nominations. The criteria are as follows:

Runner of the Year (ROTY) – a trophy awarded to the Male and Female ROTY. In your opinion which male and female runner you think have had the best year running. This can be success as in trophies, personal bests, success as in their own personal running journey, or the most improvement in their running.

Harrier of the Year (HOTY) – one trophy awarded to the person (female or male) who you feel is representative of the Club and demonstrate true “Harrierness”. They may have gone that extra mile for the club or fellow club runners, or perhaps they attend every session they can, and turn up for every club event. The choice is yours!

To help you make your choices it might be worth reading some of the “This Month’s Mentions” in the previous newsletters.

You can make your nominations online by accessing this link (you’ll need to be registered and signed in to access it). Here you’ll be able to select your nominee(s) and importantly your reason why, as it’s great for the recipient to know why their fellow club members have voted for them. You don’t have to make all 3 nominations at the same time (so you can come back to add another), but once a nomination for an award has been made it can’t be changed!

The closing date for nominations is 20:00 on Sunday 19th November so get nominating!
