The recipient of February’s Member of the Month will be unfamiliar to a lot of members, especially those who have joined within the past six months or so, as a series of injuries have meant this runner hasn’t been able to train with the club in that time. But it’s fair to say the influence they have at Tyne Bridge Harriers is massive, particularly when it comes to attracting new runners to the club.
When asked why they came along to a training session they often reply “I liked the look of the [TBH] website and decided to give it ago.”
Since it’s inception the website has been a major factor in the success of TBH and was recently upgraded to accept online entries for the Bridges of the Tyne 5M race, saving competitors both time and money. And the keen eyed amongst you would have noticed several new sponsors on the main page too. All thanks to this member.
They do an enormous amount of work for the club, most of which goes un-noticed, and they’re probably going to hate being made the centre of attention, but February’s Member of the Month is Rob Kirtley
