Men’s MOTM Oct 2019: Julian Smith

I’d like to award the men’s Member of the Month to that guy who ran an amazing 3:15 at the Abingdon Marathon with those cracking mile splits, but unfortunately I can’t remember his name so instead the pin up boy for October is – Julian Smith. I’ve chosen Julian because not only did he run two super quick marathons in the …

Men’s MOTM Aug 2019: Rob Humphreys

The award this month goes to a strong runner in the club, albeit not for his running.

Men’s MOTM Jul 2019: Chris Dowling

I’ll keep this short, however July’s member of the month’s effort was anything but short!! Chris Dowling took on the Wendover Woods 100 and for those who have done the ParkRun there will know its anything but flat. The 100 miler had over 20,000 feet of ascent and descent! Chris battled through the 100 miles in a fantastic 26 hours …

Men’s MOTM Mar 2019: Simon Wallis

March’s member of the month does vast amounts for the club on a weekly basis. His role takes up huge amounts of time and effort and it is often a thankless task but he does it fabulously well. He spends hours each week looking at results, writing reports, putting up events coming ahead along with fantastic monthly summaries of all …

February’s member of the month is ever present at the MTRs giving up oodles of time to help the events run smoothly. Furthermore, he turned up at the last XC match at Campbell …
