2021 Award Nominations Needed!

OK so it might not be quite the Olympics but we do have a few trophies up for grabs all the same soon at the next upcoming AGM + Awards evening (early April, date tbc) 🏆🥇🥈🥉💙💛

So folks it’d be hugely appreciated if you could send your nominations in to Adi for the following :-

🔹DHRC Runner of the year – male and female.
🔹DHRC Harrier of the year – 1 award only.

The criteria for ROTY is simply for the runner/s (M & F) who you think have had the best year running wise – (Jan to Dec 2021). This can be success as in trophies, etc or success as in their own personal journey, your choice 🤗.

The criteria for HOTY is same as the monthly award and can be for anybody who has gone the extra mile for club and/or colleagues in 2021, basically the person who’s displayed the most Harrierness in your opinion!

So to round up it’s 1x Harrier of the year nomination, and 1x each male and female Runner of the year nominations please.

Please, please do nominate guys – even if you’re not 100% I’m sure there’s somebody who’s made you raise your eyebrows and give them a slight tip of the hat at some point in the last year 🤓.

Please also give a brief description for your choice as well, it’ll help us when compiling candidates and making final choices.

Let Adi know your choices as soon as you can – you can email him at chairman@danumharriers.co.uk

Latest News & Xmas/New Year arrangements

Hopefully you’re all aware that this week (27th – 31st Dec) there are no scheduled club sessions, but members are more than welcome to arrange their own individual runs and promote them in the FB group. There are already runs planned on Thursday (8.8 miles with Jo and Mark) and Kev T has 3 MAF 5kms on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. Keep your eyes peeled in the group for more!

The Club Champs are all done and dusted and in both the ladies & gents competitions the leaders going into the final race were uncatchable, having been consistent throughout the season. Second and third places were still up for grabs though and it ended up being close at the end! Congratulations to Michael and Julie for coming 1st in their Gender, and well done to Lee and Stacey for finishing second and Nathaniel and Lynn for coming third. We also have to say well done to everyone else that took part in this year’s Champs and next year’s schedule is already up for you to start planning those races!
Male
1st – Michael P
2nd – Lee A
3rd – Nathaniel R
Female
1st – Julie A
2nd – Stacey Pe
3rd – Lynn H

Finally the Cross Country season was completed with Race 4 at Graves Park, and with the results in from all 4 races we were delighted to come 3rd in our League! Great running all round from everyone that attended them, hope to see you (and maybe a few more?!) at next year’s!

That’s all for now folks, see you down at the club on a Tuesday/Thursday!

Latest updates

Well we’re really back into the swing of things now at the club! Club nights are as popular as ever – last night’s was a bumper turnout and a great time was had by all members! Remember to get your name down on the booking forms in advance if you can – it helps us in several ways, the main one being for track and trace.

Tuesday’s sessions with John Beattie were a great success and everyone that attended learned some great ideas for warm ups and injury prevention. Our ‘regular’ Tuesday sessions being led by Nick at the moment are also proving popular for members wishing to improve their fitness and times, so check those out if you can.

The Club Champs are progressing well, no races have been cancelled or postponed so far. Julie looks to be pulling away in the Ladies’ event, but whilst Mick is currently leading the men’s there’s still everything to play for with 3 races left! All the info can be found on the CC page here.

Finally there’s the Cross Country season underway as well, with 2 races completed and 2 more to go. All the information can be found on this page, with details on the next race and the results for the races already completed.

That’s all for now folks, see you down at the club on a Tuesday/Thursday!
