Every month the club committee recieves a number of nominations for our Super Star award which recognises outstanding service to the club and running.
Our most recent recipients are as follows:
Debbie Dilasser: Chief Marshall at the 2021 Guy Fawkes 10
Sam Fugill: Race Director at the 2021 Guy Fawkes
Phil Robinson – Organisation beforehand and coordination of the teams on the day of the Fell Relays, also his support and encouragement of fell running within the club.
Yvonne Skelton and Martin Weeks who kindly used their camper van to make available additional water for those members running Fountains 10k on what was a very hot day in July and especially for taking good care of one of our members who did indeed overheat.
Nigel Scaife who ran 190 very hilly miles in 7 days across the Coast to Coast whilst raising money for charity, our true thanks go to Nigel for his inspiration to fell runners generally and the team he supported on this adventure specifically, well done Nigel.
Janet Jarvis who week in week out supports one of our fellow members to achieve his running objectives, thank you Janet.
Jeremy Scott for his well thought out routes, preparation and care taken with his popular Track and Trail runs, well done Jeremy.
Nadene Wilkinson, who anyone who was at the recent fish and chip run will have noticed she did as much running to Drakes and back with everyone’s orders as she did on the actual run! Nadene is also hard at work researching venues etc. for our Awards Night in January, thank you Nadene for services to catering!
Our thanks to Guy Parker and Moira McTague for stepping up to now store all of our Bed Race beds and I believe Guy may also have volunteered to try and repair one that has been broken for a while too. In thanking Guy and Moira for taking this job on we also extend our thanks to Sarah Chalmers whose late father looked after several of the beds for a number of years, Sarah was instrumental in a smooth transition to the beds new home.
Our thanks go to Phil Ventress who organised the Cleveland Way Relay for real this year.
Our coaches who have worked tirelessly these last 3 months to motivate and encourage us to run that bit faster, with better style and to not stop on lung busting hills!
As you can only win one award at once and as the Committee exempt themselves from the Superstar process, our thanks alone are extended to Emma D, Martin, Sarah S, Sarah C, Phil V and Sylvia and our thanks and awards to Christine Jones, Lynsey and Cath B – you are all Superstars!
Johnny Jonson – for smashing the course record at Melmerby, which had stood for over 30 years! – whilst this is a personal running achievement it brings great kudos to the club!
Emily Wighton – had never run more than a few miles at any one time, in March she ran for 31 consecutive days, starting with 0.5km on the first and increasing her distance by 0.5 km every day. In total she covered nearly 250km and completed her first 10mile run on the last day. She was accompanied on a lot of the longer runs by some NVRR club mates so a big thank you to everybody who supported her. She was running for the charity MIND and has raised £1050 so far.
Kevin Nicholas – his challenge involved running for 77 consecutive days which began on the 21st of December and ended on the 7th of March. He ran at least 7k each day and ran 26.2 miles, a marathon, on his final day. In all, he ran a total of 535 miles. The significance of the 7’s coincided with the 7 in 7 challenge carried out be Kevin Sinfield, to support his fellow team member and friend, Rob Burrows, who is battling with MND. Kevin raised £2449 for the MND Association.
