Finch Coasters Awards Evening 2012

We celebrated the club’s performances over the last year at the Moat House Hotel in Sindlesham by awarding the prizes for our cross country and club championships.

We had good attendance at the Cross Countries over the last season and fielded a team at every race. The Men’s Championship was hotly contested with several people vying for the title. This was eventually won by Luciano Merolla with Steve Bolt coming in second. Andy Yarrow was also competitive and only missed the last cross country race due to an injury. For the Ladies Championship Sarah Evans won the title ahead of second place Lee Avery.

The club has two races as part of its Club Championship – the Wokingham half marathon and the Shinfield 10k so prizes are awarded for both races. Prizes are also awarded for those who most improved their PB or set the highest new PB. We also award a special prize for anyone who breaks a PB that they set more than 5 years previously.

At the Wokingham Half Luciano Merolla won the Men’s Championship while Carol Yarrow took the Ladies Championship and also secured an award for beating her PB from over 5 years ago, albeit by only 4 seconds!  Andy Clempson improved his {B by over 24 minutes to earn the most improved PB award.

At the Shinfield 10k Paul Evans narrowly held off Luciano Merolla to win the Men’s Championship and also earn Most Improved PB whilst Judy Bennett took the Ladies Championship.  Steve Butler set the fastest new PB for the race.

A series of other mostly tongue in cheek awards were given out on the night with the members present voting for who should get each award out of the nominated people.

The ever popular club quiz went down very well with questions from 30 years ago (1982) reflecting the club’s 30th anniversary this year and other rounds on the club members and running logos.

Thanks go to Sarah Evans who organised the venue and meal, the flowers, wine and trophies. Thanks also to Andy Elliott and Andy Yarrow for organising the quiz.
