2021 Achievements

Happy New Year to everyone

As we welcome the New Year I have been looking back on the amazing club achievements throughout 2021 not all of which is actual running.  First of all we should congratulate everyone for providing support and positivity to each other throughout the various restrictions whether it has been buddying up to run together or by social media comments. This list will not have everything included but we all should be proud of ourselves.

  • Coaches were able to provide sessions whilst keeping to government guidelines to those wanting to attend with the assistance of Emma and Pip providing a booking system.
  • The Management Committee kept the club running with the aid of online virtual meetings.
  • Our first virtual annual AGM
  • Social Committee organised activities such as picnic in the park, a litter pick, a charity bonus ball and we were finally able to have the Anniversary Ball 18 months later than originally planned.
  • Ian Bond adapted the 5k parkrun challenge to work and be inclusive to members whilst parkrun could not be held.
  • Jeff Marriott kept us all singing and dancing with the monthly playlists
  • We raised £127.50 for MND from the charity bonus ball
  • Many members committed to virtual challenges from 5k through every distance to virtually running long distances to name a few such as the North Coast 500, Le-jog, Lands End to John O’ Groats
  • Emma and Michael running an online Christmas Quiz
  • Lisa Johnstone for creating the facility to buy the anniversary ball and bonus ball tickets and Ian Hart for sorting out the financials

Now for the actual running. Well done to everyone whether you have been running alone, attending Club Sessions or going for social runs together,  We have had a great year for Club Records, running marathons and age category placements. Those that I am aware of are listed here.  Going forward if you think you have set or broken a Club Record (you can find the current ones on our website) please email stats@quakersrunningclub.org.uk so that it can be verified and updated.

Wishing you all a great and injury free 2022
