TATTENHALL Runners celebrated 12 months of success at the club’s annual awards night.
In the club road championship, Andy Sudlow took first spot for the men, with Grace Hart picking up the ladies’ award.
Andy’s excellent season also saw him victorious in the cross country championship, with Marilyn Kitching once again the ladies’ champion.
The hotly-contested fell championship was won by Peter Taylor and Sarah Hammond.
With a new format this year, the club championship, taking account of performances across these three disciplines, was won by Alistair McNay and Kathy Frankland.
The title of most improved male runner over the year was won by Rob Arden, with Sharon Basford taking the ladies’ crown.
Fell runner of the year, awarded for services to the discipline, was awarded to Nick Holmes in recognition of his continued efforts in organising the Llantisylio fell race, and for taking part in the Fellsman this year.
