Have you been keeping an eye on your race and parkrun times to work towards a club standards award?

With spring marathons being run, a few 10Ks, half marathons and four months of parkruns, we now have 180 BPJs that have completed at least one event that would count towards an award, some only one event short of an award and now 27 members that have earned themselves an award.

The awards are a great way to set yourself targets and goals for your running. By completing at least three different events (from 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon) at the particular standard for your age/gender category, you can earn one of four awards (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum). Find out more on the club standards page.

I’m pleased to announce the following that have earned an award:

  • Christopher Berry – Silver
  • David Bessant – Bronze
  • Julie Bott – Bronze
  • Steve Bott – Silver
  • Paul Childs – Gold
  • Peter Darwen – Silver
  • Matthew Davis – Silver
  • Richard Drewett – Gold
  • Paul Evans – Silver
  • Clive Griffiths – Platinum
  • Simon Griffiths – Gold
  • Ann Hadley – Silver
  • Michael Harte – Silver
  • Emma Holland – Bronze
  • Sara Holloway – Bronze

  • Darrin Lynn – Silver
  • James Matheson – Silver
  • Nichola Robinson – Bronze
  • Claire Shacklock – Bronze
  • Ewelina Skolimowska – Bronze

  • Victoria Watkins – Silver

If your name is on the list, we will print off your shiny certificate and be in touch soon to arrange to present you with it. You can review your race results through the club website, on the race results page or via the Power of 10 site.

Once you’ve earned an award, you can then work toward the next level.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch or discuss on the club Facebook group.

A big thank you to Derek Jackson who put together the awards scheme for the club to run.
