Congratulations to James Walsh - NHRR Squirrel of the Month August 2017
James received this award for all his hard work organising the 10-week couch-to-5-k (C25K) course which accumulated with 30 beginners completing the September first Saturday of the month race.
Apart from organising all the helpers and session, his weekly motivating emails to the beginners and adding tips and trick for those new to running were well received.
Thanks James and all the members who gave up their time to make this happen.

Congratulations to Katie Harbon - NHRR Squirrel of the Month May 2017
Katie Harbon (ladies team captain) for coming first overall and female race winner in all of the 3 mid week league races she attended over this year’s schedule. With her help, the ladies team secured an overall first place in the league.
But its reassuring that even stars are not perfect. She lost her race number before the first race and had to run with a different hand hand-written number each of the races..
Congratulations to Monica Cullin - NHRR Squirrel of the Month May 2017
Monica showed no modesty and really bared all for the club when a fellow club mate turned up at the 2nd MWL without a club vest. At the start line with about 2 minutes until the start Monic took one for the good of the team and stripped off her vest to allow her fellow club mate to run and score for the team. This act of selflessness meant the ladies team won on the night. Monica you truly are May's Squirrel of the month.
Congratulations Jeni Spurr-Jones - NHRR Squirrel of the Month for April 2017
Jeni started in our beginners group last year completing the couch to 5k program. Since then she has continued to challenge herself with new distances and has impressed us all by completing Brighton Marathon in under 5 hours. Non runner to marathon runner in 18 months is a great achievement which has won her the title of April's Squirrel of the Month.
