Annual Social Event

       

Each year since the club came into operation in April 1994 and up to 2012, the club has held very successful presentation evenings with guests including Olympic Champions, European Champions, Ex Olympic Athletes and leading members of society.

Ann Packer who won Olympic Gold in 1968 at 800 metres and Robbie Brightwell who was European Champion at 400 metres in 1970 were great guests for the club.  Members were impressed with their medals and took part in a Q &A session. Andy Carter who came 5th at the 1972 Olympics has also been an inspiring guest at presentation evenings along with Norman Matthews, the England Fell Running Team Manager.

Other leading members of society who have been guests are the Chief Constable of Cheshire, Peter Fahy where many members of the club are police officers and police staff of the force.  Sports Editor of the Chronicle papers has also been a guest for the presentation evening in the past, a great supporter of the club.

This has been one of the highlights of the year where each year over 150 athletes and parents attend to receive prizes for best achievements in various age groups along with the presentation of the shine awards to junior athletes.

In recent years the Club has been trying different formats for its main social event - recent examples being our 20th Anniversary Party in 2014 and a surprise 70th birthday party for long-time coach Shaun McGrath in 2015.
