Askew Trophy Winners

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The inter-club season has come to a close. That means we can reveal how those who attended the inter-club events have fared in the Askew Trophy stakes. Points are awarded to runners who compete in the inter-club events throughout the season. Generally, 1st home gets 10 points, 2nd gets 9, 3rd gets 8 and so on.

A reflection of our “ageing” club, there were a large number of contenders in the Masters Men but Graeme Butcher won comfortably ahead of Malcolm MacDonald (2nd) and Ray Haste (3rd). Micheal Macklin was 1st in the open men and Frankie Spite took the Women’s title ahead of Teresa Reynolds (2nd) and Annie Jerling (3rd).

Well done everyone. It was great to see so many travelling away to represent the club this year.

Young runners to watch

posted in: Cross country, Running | 0

Our youngest runners are certainly setting the standard this season. We have three midget-aged runners who have stepped up to higher grades and making their presence felt. Jacob Day won Junior Grade in the first race of the season. In the second race Mackenzie Murray finished 1st and Farlon Barber 2nd to lead in the intermediate runners. Watch these enthusiastic young runners, they may well be our future champs.
