Member of the month for January is ……….We have two!
Andrew Gage and Steve Mason
A little bit about Andrew
Andrew only joined HRC in early 2021 and has been a regular at Thursday night club runs ever since.
Andrew took on The Peddars Way trail ultra on 22nd Jan. This event sees runners complete 48 miles of mostly fields and in order to gain your medal, runners must complete the course in just 12 hours and if they are not at mile 27 in 6 hours, they are disqualified
Andrew completed the whole distance in a very respectful time of 10.23.53, getting to marathon distance in 5.05.
What an achievement! Well done Andrew.
A little bit about Steve
Steve joined HRC in 2017. He is one of our quiet but quick runners and can often be seen near the front at our monthly time trials.
On 16th Jan, Steve took park in the notoriously hard Benfleet 15. Weeks of rain meant that this hilly trail course was even muddier than usual, yet he still managed a fantastic time of 1.44.29, which brought him home in 18th place out of 625 runners!!
Well done Steve, what a performance
