This years Presentation Evening was again held at the Park Hall Hotel
on the 2nd July when over 140 people turned up and a jolly
good time was had by all.
As well as the tee-shirts, medals and certificates that were given out to this
years beginners, a number of Achievement Awards were also given to people who
have gone that extra mile and achieved that little bit extra.
From the Established Runners:-
The Undisputed Runner of the Year was again Enid Brazier, who at 63 ran her
second marathon The London, after taking up running only 3 years ago. There was no way on
earth that Enid couldn't win the award. She's a inspiration to everyone in
the club and puts people a third of her age to shame. She has proven that no one
will ever be able to use their age as an excuse for not doing something ever
From the Beginners Course :-
Cohen – This lady is not a natural runner and has had to overcome one or two
injuries and problems but she stuck at it and she did it and she did it with a
smile on her face.
Tracey Green –
Within the last few months, this lady’s way of
life has changed dramatically. She has lost so much weight and changed her
shape, appearance and outlook so much that close friends that knew her tell us
that they can’t recognise her as the same person.
Tracy Deeley - This lady originally came as a
beginner but within a couple of weeks she’d progressed so quickly that we had to
put her with the established runners and not content with that she went on to
run the Liverpool Women’s 10K.
Gupta - This lady’s has got a wonderful
personality. She’s always has a smile on her face and always leaves you feeling
better for being with her. She’s not a natural runner and so for her to run 3
miles is absolutely fantastic. It’s not been easy for her but she was so
determined to do it and we’re really pleased for her. She’s a real inspiration
Rosemary Morgan – This lady hardly ever
misses and with the support of her family around her has persevered to do
something she never thought she’d do and has put girls half her age to shame.
Lynn Kosteczko –
This lady will tell you that running is the hardest
thing she’s ever done and there were times during the course that she doubted if
she’d finish it but even though she took time out to go on holiday she still
came back and finished what she’d started.
Margaret Quebdani – This lady only joined the course
a few weeks ago as an absolute beginner. She had her doubts but was encouraged
by daughter Fiona to give it a go and she did in a few weeks what everyone else
took 10 weeks to do.
Kylea Norbury -
For this lady to run 3 miles was a real personal
achievement and in fact she has now run over 4 miles. She was committed and
focussed, turned up every week and has proved her husband and everybody else who
doubted her wrong.
Isobel Stavenuiter – This lady was a bit unsure when
she first started but as never missed and as the weeks have gone by she’s got
better and better and better.
Michelle Pearce –
Is another lady who is not a natural runner but
inspired by the achievements of Tracey Green, she has stuck at it, overcome a
few injury worries, lost weight and done really well. She a real inspiration and
example to anyone.
Liz Woods - This lady has a real bubbly personality
and has impressed us by her sheer enthusiasm and the way in which she always put
herself out and gave up her own training to look after others and shepherd in
anyone in trouble.
Wallace - This lady doesn’t fit the normally
expected runner profile but we were hugely impressed by her sheer determination
to do it and the way she conducted herself. She worked out what worked for her
and stuck at it with bags of enthusiasm and commitment. And the look on her
face when she ran the 3 miles for the first time was great………Her little face
Established Runners Achievement Awards
Gloria Bell - Gloria's enthusiasm is infectious and
rubs off on everybody
Miriam Brettle and Medina
Stevens - Are inseparable sisters who spend more time shepherding and
Alison Camwell - A recent recruit who's started as
an absolute beginner who has progressed outstandingly
Mary Lavender - Mary
is the comeback queen. After spending weeks off work and in hospital Mary is
again pounding the streets and encouraging sister Caroline to stick at it.
Mary Painting - Sixty one year old Mary took up
running last year and has already done a couple of races including this years
blisteringly hot and infamous Liverpool Women's 10K
Lynn Rushton - There
isn't a nicer more enthusiastic runner in the club
Most Improved Runner of the Year
Donna Concannon and Sue Hickman - This year it was
impossible to give only one award for the most improved runner. Donna and Sue do
everything together and the change in their shape and overall fitness has been
nothing short of dramatic.
Club Woman of the Year
Brenda Chapman - What can you say about Brenda, she
makes the club by just walking in to the room. Without Brenda's help the club
would struggle. She does everything asked, gives up her own running to support
the weak and lame and always has a laugh and a smile for everyone.
