At the Running Club's Christmas dinner the annual awards were handed out. The one everyone would like to get is the Grand Prix Series award which is given to the male and female with the most points from the 10K, 1, 3 and 10 mile races. The races are spread through the year, so you have to keep fit and fast for a long time. Pete Moody and Lorraine Fozzard were the winners. Once again showing that as you get older you can still get faster.

It's been really hard this and the past few years to find sponsors due to the economic downturn, but then came a great offer from Neelam Balti of Lowdham to provide us with our away kit.
