It gives me great pleasure to announce Izzy Cairns as the TBH Member of the Month for December 2015.
Izzy was recognised by her team-mates following two outstanding feats of endurance in December.
Firstly, finishing 1st lady (and 2nd overall) in the Hexham 50Km race and secondly, winning the NEMC Winter Wonder Run around Newcastle Town Moor, with Izzy the only competitor to run 10 laps of the moor (each lap 3.77 miles) inside the six hours time limit.
It also has to be noted that Izzy, along with her partner Stevie, regularly travel from their home in the Scottish Borders to compete for the club.
Many Congratulations Izzy
Also highly commended for December’s award were;
Finn Brodie-Affleck – part of the men’s winning team at the Saltwell 10k, and who’s terrific 8th place in the NE XC Championships helped the team finish in a very credible 3rd place.
Danny Fletcher – gave up his time during the festive period to put on unofficial training sessions and is becoming an outstanding leader in Group 4; motivating and supporting everyone under his guidance.
Kurt Heron – finishing 2nd in the Blyth Sands Race and 4th in the Saltwell 10K.
Many thanks to all the members who submitted nominations for the award.
