Christmas Party and Awards Night

Norwich Road Runners Christmas Party and Awards Night

Members of the club turned out at Sprowston Manor Hotel on Friday 8th December to let down their hair, lose the running lycra and donned their best outfits for the annual Christmas party.

For most it had been a long season and this was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the club and individuals success from 2017.  The party goers enjoyed an excellent 3 course meal, lots of drinks(!) before hoping to win big on the raffle and finally dancing the night away.

The Photo Booth was a big hit..!! 

In the weeks leading up to the party, club members had been voting for individuals across several categories, this year the worthy winners were:-

Female Newcomer - Alicia Lacey
Senior Female - Lucy Ring
Veteran Female - Wendy Smith

Male Newcomer - Simon Wright
Senior Male - Daniel Middleton
Veteran Male - Chris Bullock

To recognise individuals who really do some incredible things the Clubs Committee have to decide on the 'Outstanding Achievement Award'.  However, it was once again really very hard to single anyone out with the award being a joint result once again, this year going to David Allen and Lucy Spinks.

Both David and Lucy over the last 12 months have completed 11 marathons between them, including trail and ultra events, numerous half marathons as well as raising money for charities very close to them.

Finally big thanks goes to the Social Committee of Caroline Allen and Victoria Utting who arranged the whole evening, which very much enjoyed by all...!
