Member of the Month
Our first Member of the Month of 2023 is someone who has never received the esteemed award before... Tracy Tailford has recently become one of our most prolific club runners, not just joining the evening sessions but also teaming-up for the weekend runs. Just this last Saturday, she took on a half-marathon distance as a training run, entering new realms with mutual support from the club. January saw her helping the Ladies team in the XC at the Cotswold Farm Park and indeed she has bravely ventured into the Gloucestershire XC league - something completly new to her. Already a popular member of the club, Tracy’s quiet and smiley demeanour hides a determination whilst running that is resulting in some fine and notably improved performances. One to watch in 2023 as the seeds of consistent training are being sown. Congratulations Tracy - our MotM for January.
Running away with our Member of the Month award for February is the outstanding Lucinda Jones. Lucy, having won the award exactly 3 years ago in Feb 2020, has improved month by month and is now the club's quickest lady over a range of distances.
February saw her take on some of the most competitive runners in the area over the Pittville Park cross country course and demonstrated her ability with another confident performance that impressed the most during the latter stages - something that she first showed us last year in the Croome Capability Canter.
In the Bourton 10k, one of the regions most prestigious road races, Lucy showed her best performance to date; breaking the 45 minute mark is known as the speedy benchmark for ladies and with Lucy sitting on her course PB of 46:16 mins, she was perfectly placed to impress and that she did... leading the club's female contingent home in an outstanding 42:47 minutes! A great day for Lucy making her club, family and friends very proud.
Congratulations Lucy - our MotM for February.
