Runner of the Month – May 2021

It is hard to believe that our last Runner of the Month award was back in November! Thankfully as restrictions begin to ease and we can get back to training and racing, we can also get back to honouring the efforts put in by members each month.

There was definitely no shortage of effort throughout May, with a mixture of hard work in training, fast racing and mammoth distances completed. This has been reflected in a number of worthy nominees:

First up, Gemma Fowler: “Gemma has improved so much in her running.”

Next up, Neil Campbell: “Neil’s performance at the recent NIURA event was outstanding. Not only did he run 100K but he achieved a podium winning third place. Congratulations Neil.”

Not forgetting, Lee O’Boyle: “For his superb effort and 1st place at the NIURA 100k race.”

As always there can only be one winner and for May it is none other than Angela Stevens!
“Serious amount of training and effort went into completing her recent ultra marathon! Such a fantastic achievement!”
“Fantastic performance at her first ultra marathon!”
“All I can say is 50k, unbelievable.”
“Amazing lady running her first ultra.”

Congratulations Angela, well deserved!
