NOTFAST members enjoyed their annual 10K handicap (won by Marilyn Hatherley) and Awards Ceremony on Sunday 5th January. They met at Sibthorpe fishing lodge, ran 10K, filled up with a lovely buffet and then received awards presented for last year’s efforts.
Kate Fisher and Piotr Dura were loaded down with trophies, while other members were also rewarded for their efforts.

She also received awards for her success at The Gordon Welbourne week and The Notts. Summer League. Piotr Dura won the awards of Club Runner of the year for the number and variety of races run and Most Improved Runner as his race times have reduced enormously during the year.

David Gill’s continuing dedication to The Summer League and The Notts. Cross Country series was recognised.
