Member of the Month: April 2019

Our member of the month for April is a regular nominee with a number of recent race wins and impressive PBs. Some of her achievements include a 18:25 PB at the Terry O’Gara 5k, 18:37 1st lady at the Redcar Spring Coast Road 5k and a 38:42 PB at the Blyth 10k. One of the nominations this month ended with ‘gotta be Sophie – she got all of the PBs!’ Congratulations go to the brilliant Sophie Marr!
