sutton runners club championships
The Sutton Runners Club Championships had always taken place over a 10 mile route – not always the same race. However we felt this did not allow for some of our newer members to participate due to the distance. It was therefore decided this year that our new Club Championship event will be held at the Ranelagh Richmond 10k which fits into our vision of making the event accessible to all.
The Ranelagh Richmond 10k is also part of the Surrey Road League events and therefore some members will be able to use this event not only for the Club Championships but as one of their individual scores for the Road League.
This is an annual club event which culminates mid season and always draws a big attendance from club members. The 2011 event was the biggest attendance to date with over 44 members taking part in the Ranelagh Richmond 10k.
Results for 2014
The Ranelagh Richmond 10km provided not only the location, but a new shorter distance for our Club Championship (previously the Cabbage Patch 10m). Sutton Runners provided the largest number of runners from any one club in the race. We had no less than 37 members battling it out in various categories, but on the day, Elinor Nippard and Martin Giles became the Club Champions of 2013. They received their trophies at a very well attended evening session.
