Celebrating club success

More than 50 people attended the Shepparton Runners Club (SRC) Presentation night on Saturday 18th November at Bicaro’s Restaurant to celebrate the club handicap series and individual successes.

Awards were presented to six members who participated in the handicap series throughout the year, ranging from 5km to 10km. The award winners were Steven Trevaskis, Tom O’Halloran Veteran Memorial award, Cadel Nicholson, Junior Club Champion and Peter Cody Memorial awards, Jason Hunter, Male Club Champion and Handicap Winner awards and Sue Olley, Female Club Champion award.

Two other awards were presented on the night. ‘Most Improved’ award, was presented to Kate Dainton.  Kate said “Totally blown away and speechless, thanks for the clubs support & encouragement. I wouldn’t have done it without you”

Club Person of the year was awarded to Nadine Edwards. SRC President, Steve Ayton said “Nadine has been an integral part of the Club not only this year, but in previous years as well. Her passion, enthusiasm and commitment to the Club is undoubted and the recognition via Club Person of the year is well deserved.

The SRC are participating in Activities in the Park for the month of November. If you are interested to know more about the club, come down to a training night on Tuesday at Victoria Lake at 5:45pm, or Thursday at the Club Rooms at Princess Park at 5:45pm, or visit our website www.sheppartonrunnersclub.com.au
