The post Match Two update provided by Brenda made reference to the end of season awards presentation along with other important updates.

U11/U13,U15 & U17 presentations will take place close to the finish area (weather permitting) as soon as possible after each race.

Senior, U20 & Vet presentations as last year will be made in the Courtyard Cafe in Wythenshawe Park.

4:30 pm Soup/Roll and Cake will be served (must be pre-booked)

5:15 pm Presentation of Awards; Presentation of the Senior, Under 20 & Veteran Overall Awards.

All are welcome but please have clean footwear – i.e. no muddy trainers! We’ll aim to get the Presentation underway at 5 o’clock AND! you can have SOUP/ROLL & CAKE at the subsidised cost of just £2! BUT! as we have to pre-book the food, tickets have to be purchased in advance.

You will be able to purchase soft drinks, tea or coffee from 3:30 pm. The last date for booking the food is Saturday 6th February.

FREE RAFFLE. Just bring along your race number and put it in the draw (Two prizes of the Ground Control “Off road shoe” and kindly donated by Tony Hulme of Running Bear). The first womans’ and the first mans’ number drawn will be the winners BUT! the raffle is only open to Senior/U20/Vet runners who attend the Presentation. The draw will be made when all the Awards have been presented AND! we’ll announce the winner of the Special Merit Award (See below)!

SPECIAL MERIT AWARD – there will be a Special Merit Award to be presented at the Senior Presentation. Is there a member of your Club who merits an award? We would like each Club to nominate one of their members who has made a significant contribution to their Club’s participation in the League. They don’t have to be a competing member, they might be a coach or a team manager – anyone who has made a contribution. Your nomination should be submitted to the League by Saturday 8th February with the reason why you feel this person merits a special award. The nomination should be made by your Club Contact. The League’s Working Group will decide the winner. Announcement of the winner will be made at the Senior Presentation.

This is the seventh year of holding the “Awards Presentation” in the warmth of a venue and close to the race (The Courtyard Cafe is within the park). Relax and wind down with your friends and club colleagues. In recent years, a collage of the best race photos has been on display and provided by League Photographer Harry Shakeshaft. We now have a number of collage to showcase the best photos of recent years.
