What is Runner of The Month & how is it chosen?
For many years now Leighton Fun Runners has chosen a Runner of The Month. This is a person whom the Captain's team believe deserves to be recognised.
Nominations can be made by members. These nominations will be considered but it doesn't mean their nomination will be chosen. It will definitely be considered along with those already being thought about.
Since February 2020 the Runner of The Month has specifically been chosen based upon:
- Recent running achievements
- How they have used club sessions to get to this point
- Do they contribute to the club
- LFR Spirit
When there is more than 1 candidate being considered for a month, then the winner will be selected taking all criteria into account. Some months only one member may stand out and in that case not all measures need to be reached. The final decision lies with the Captain's team.
No one is ever overlooked for their achievements.
November Runner of The Month
Runner of the Month goes to Rachel and Michelle. In October they completed the challenging Beachy Head Marathon in awful conditions. Not only did they complete it, but they did it with smiles on their faces, posted updates throughout and epitomise everything that LFR is about. Well done ladies!
