Congleton Harriers running club
It was the North Staffs Road Runners Association Awards night on Saturday and a pair of Congleton Harriers featured heavily, picking up multiple awards.
Carol Bird was awarded the lady runner of the year trophy and picked up further prizes for finishing 1st in the F55 category; 3rd in group L (the runners who enter the competition are banded into groups based upon ability); and she ended the season with two F55 NSRRA records for the 20-mile and marathon distances. Bird was also inaugurated into the NSRRA hall of fame.
Elaine Statham was recognised with four awards, for breaking the F75 NSRRA records for 5k, five miles, 10k and 10 miles.
