E.R.I.C. Winner 2008

The very worthy winner of this year's ERIC Trophy is NIGEL STARR.

Not only did Nigel compete in more races than anyone else this year but he was here, there and everywhere giving support to other competitors when he wasn't running, organising things like the badminton night and generally being a good club member.  Congratulations and thanks Nigel.


Xmas Lights/Buffet/London Entry

An excellent turn out for the annual Xmas Lights run on the 17th saw a good 20 - 30 runners charging off towards Long Eaton looking for "lit up" houses.  This seemed to be rather more difficult than normal as every house seemed to be cutting back due to the recession.  Four runners veered off in a different direction from the rest and managed to "light up " the area !! And have the photo to prove it !

Thank you to all who took part in this new competition.  We had a total of 32 different runners taking part in one or more of the races.  The overall winner was Melanie Dilley but it was very close!
