Lightning does strike twice! Huge congratulations are in order after both mens and ladies teams were victorious in the Elvis league for the second year running. A dominant start to the season saw the men rack up four wins in the first five races, building an unassailable lead, and sealed league victory with a race to spare. The ladies league was more competitive, with success not confirmed until the final fixture, where a strong turnout resulted in the most convincing win of the season.
There was further success in the individual competitions, with Jenny Heymann crowned champion for the fourth year running! Lee Milne was the V40 champion, and yours truly Captain Boddo was second overall in the mens competition.
There was a lot of fantastic running this year, I noticed a lot of PBs at the various races. A couple of personal highlights of the year were being part of the mens A Team charging around the Olympic Park on our way to victory for one; witnessing the mighty ladies team crushing it at at Valentines park for another.
Thank you to everyone who took part as a runner, volunteer or support squad. After a lot of years with not many team trophies to show for our efforts, we can all be very proud of what we’re achieving now. If we keep this up, we’re going to need a bigger table at the awards night! UTM!
