HRC Member of the Month – July 2022

HRC Member of the month for July is… Mark Novels

A little bit about him;

Mark joined HRC this year and has been running for a few years but only competitively since lockdown ended. He recently turned 59, one more year until a new age cat!

Since joining the club Mark has given his all at events, steadily gaining a wealth of impressive PB’s.

Recent noteworthy performances;

He won his age category at Newmarket 10k.

At Ekiden, Mark ran a 40-minute 10k. He also showed perseverance in pulling a team together, despite challenges and displayed a positive team spirit throughout.

During the Hockey’s 5k at Carver Barracks Mark gave it his all, and carried on to finish strongly despite falling quite seriously and causing damage to his mouth.

Not withstanding upcoming dental treatment Mark has remained positive, cheerful and fiercely competitive still. This epitomises his personality and resilience.

Good luck now with your marathon training Mark and thanks for your commitment in club training sessions and support of the club both within running events and helping to organise social events too.

We think you are an inspiration! Well done!
