Runner of the Month for December

runofmonthJointly awarded to Caron Ralph and Shane Ewen, with a special mention for Graham Lake.

Caron had a busy December sneaking in under the hour in the Chevin Chase, and then five days late running the Auld Lang Syne in 67:35. Earlier in the December she came fourth in the Ken Dixon Handicap to claim third spot in the Eric Smith Handicap Trophy,  as well as completing the Really Wild Boar Fell Race in 67:18.

Shane started the month with the Mytholmroyd Fell Race, finishing 27th in 58.44, then completed the Stoop Fell Race in 39:03 to claim 56th spot and then finishing the year masquerading as Mr Strong in the Auld Lang Syne race to come 107th in 56:10.

Well done to everyone!

    Well done both of you! Brilliant running especially in December when most of us can’t move much due to too much turkey & wine!
