Thanks to all the staff for a great service.

The awards were served up by none other than our favourites, Chris Cox and Martin Shortall, who were hosts for the evening, with Lorraine Amos taking on the role of chief photographer.

Trophies were presented to those placed first, second and third in the Grand Prix (Men: Dan Floyd, James Coombes, Matt Orford; women: Hermione Green, Lorraine Amos, Tamla Short), Time Trial (Helen King, Nick Parkes, Richard Newman) and Cross Country competitions (Ruth Kennedy-Green, Joe Goodwin, Richard Newman), with the Bob Connor Trophy being awarded for the best ‘age-graded’ performance in the Grand Prix (Joe Goodwin, Clare Wheat and Dan Turner in first, second and third positions).

For the 2020 Grand Prix, much of which was held virtually, additional age category trophies were awarded, so there was a bumper crop of deserving winners! Full results can be found on the competition pages.

Last but not least, two trophies were awarded for running performance and outstanding contribution to the club, to Helen King and Dave Sanders respectively. These were nominated and voted for by club members.

A big well done to all of those who took part in the 2020 competitions, and let’s look forward to seeing more awards and new faces for 2021.
