Thursday 29th December saw SADRC have their annual prizegiving/Christmas gathering!
A wonderful time of the year to catch up with all sites, and celebrate everyone's achievements. Its a time to say THANK YOU to all members, committee, volunteers, run leaders who all work so hard to pull off, which I have to say, I might be a little bias....a BLOOMING AWESOME RUNNING CLUB!
This year was no different. A new venue and a fantastic band saw all 4 sites come together to celebrate. Shaun hosted proceedings in presenting the awards! Congratulations to all the winners and nominations. Such a wonderful array of nominations, and its wonderful to see the club grow with new runners, seasoned runners and everything in-between.

New Years Day 10km
The anniversary of SADRC is marked by this New Years Day run at Cleethorpes!
Jenson Windsor crossed the line in 14th position in a time of 35:47. An incredible time, with Jenson one to watch for 2024 to see his progression and results. Mark Sands followed for SADRC finishing 1st in his age category in a time of 37:05 and Phillip Weaver in 38:35 for the men.
The women's race was also hot on the press for SADRC with Janet Harmston finishing first in her age category in a time of 50:08, followed by Leanne Rickett in 52:13. Alex South crossed 3rd for the women in 54:40.
As always, a wonderful day for SADRC and great to see so many faces such as Annabel Bradley (1hr09), Sian Matthews (1hr01) who has most certainly making the most of her SADRC vest and Steven Wellham (46:16).
