Runner of The Month – August 2014

This month the Otley AC club committee has voted to elect Mark Hall to be the Runner of the Month for August 2014.

Mark has been in splendid form and has continued to show his effervescent nature through August and into early September.

In August Mark finished 9th at Askern 10mile & 4th at Burnsall 10mile.


Well done Mark!

    Indeed well done Mark , the Award is really deserved, Mark is one of the strongest competitor that I ever met in my 40 plus years of my life with running clubs.

    You are always very generous with you words and I thank you. I think as vets our performances are not always appreciated when competing with the ‘young guns’.

    I too admire your enthusiasm to compete as you have been representing OAC for a long time and I think I speak for many when I say you are much appreciated.

    Mark you are right Antonio is always generous in the comments column. Absolutely right in this case as your times are International standard in the age group. Well done indeed.

    Well done Mark – you deserve this. Red or white?

    Sustained effort from Mark for a long time; thoroughly deserved winner.

    Yep well done Mark. You train hard and race regularly so probably the most deserving RoM for a while (especially for an auld fella!)

    Congratulations Mark, it just shows that it doesn’t matter what age you are you can still be a competitive runner. Still hope for me then?!!
