Presentation Evening

Phew this might all seem a bit late but actually my feet have barely hit the ground since our very first snails presentation evening last Saturday. The evening celebrated the club and the people who’ve worked so hard to build it. We had awards for the winners of each of our championship divisions , most improved park runner, most champs points overall and of course our snail of the year.


The winners were:

Snail of the year 1st place – Shiela Ryder

Snail of the year 2nd place – Joanne Pollard

Snail of the year 3rd place – Dave Gee


M1 1st Place – Sean ‘Buster’ Suttle

M1 2nd Place – Jonathan Moon

M1 3rd Place – Kyle Spencer


F1 1st Place – Ellen Battye

F1 2nd Place – Anne Molloy

F1 3rd Place – Emma Suttle


M2 1st Place – Gary Taylor

M2 2nd Place – Daniel Priestman

M2 3rd Place – Rob Hick


F2 1st Place – Hannah Priestman

F2 2nd Place – Suzanne Fretwell

F2 3rd Place – Julie Browne and Adele Harris


F3 1st Place – Amanda Aveyard

F3 2nd Place – Caroline Lowery

F3 3rd Place – Nicola Brown


Most championship points overall – Daniel Priestman

Most improved parkrunner – Caroline Lowery


As runners we’re all used to seeing each other a little red in the face, sweaty and perhaps not at our best. But not on Saturday, all the girls looked glam and the boys looked dapper, there was even a special shout out to Ellen Battye’s bum.

The snails are always a sociable bunch but Saturday seemed even more so, there were toasts to friendships, real enthusiasm for the winners and of course a fair few of us stayed in Roxy’s until closing time.

A special thanks to Jodie Smith and Jonathan Moon who worked hard to organise the event. I for one can’t wait for next years.

If you want to get involved check out the ‘club championships’ page to find out more. I’m sure there’ll be some more social events soon.
