Strathearn Harriers - New Year's Day Run 2014

Harriers ceilidh and prizegiving

Sunday, January 31, 2016

The annual ceilidh and prizegiving was held at Morrison’s Academy on Saturday, with trophy presentations from club president Gordon Morrison and championship organiser Tony Wayte.

Club champions Wattie and Cathy were presented with their trophies for consistent performances throughout the racing season. Wattie was successfully defending his 2014 title, while Cathy’s win saw her repeat her championship win from 2009. Cathy’s win was only confirmed with the last race of the championship series in a tightly-fought tussle with Wendy T. Wattie’s win was slightly more comfortable, having established a commanding lead in the first half of the series with a dominant set of race results.

The President’s Trophies, as voted for by the club membership, were awarded to Julia Greenlees and Andy Aitken in recognition of their overall contributions to the club. Achievement awards were presented to 28 runners for their performances over 10k, half-marathon and marathon distances, with Wendy T being the only runner to complete a clean sweep over all distances. Certificates were also awarded to club members who completed the Marcothon. A full list of award winners follows below.

As with all club events, a small army of volunteers and helpers contributed to the success of the evening, but particular thanks are due to Susan in her role as Social Secretary for the club. Susan is standing down from her post this year and will be a hard act to follow!
