|January||Benji Darken||Benji Darken joined HRC in 2017 at the age of 12 and trained with the adults until he joined the HRCJ section when it was formed. Over the last few years he has done HRC proud by winning numerous trophies and he is very committed to his running and is disciplined with his training.|
Benji is a great team player, more so during lock down challenges and is always participating and striving to do his best for the team.
In these challenging times we find ourselves in, Benji has managed to stay focused and motivated to get to half marathon distance.
|February||Melanie Catton||Mel joined HRC in 2014 not long after her second son was born. She’s a naturally fast runner who doesn’t give herself enough credit! In the new year she started training with Kelly Mepham and has worked really hard sticking to her training programme even during lockdown, whilst working full time and with three young children at home. Her hard work is starting to pay off and she is seeing lots of improvements in her times.|
|March||Mark White||Mark has been no stranger to a challenge during his time at HRC and his 4x4x48 challenge was quite possibly the most gruelling one yet! Mark has constantly shown that no matter how tough it gets or how tired you are, to never gives up and power through – sometimes with a wheelbarrow race, piggy backs, head stands, mud fights, you name it!!He has helped to raise a lot of money for very worthy causes close to his heart which shows just what a caring person he is. Mark is an inspiration to everyone in the club and he will continue to find new challenges and keep people laughing wherever he can!|
