HPRC is delighted and proud to announce that it has been shortlisted for two ‘Club
of the Year’ awards this year -
2016 has been a fantastic year for the club, with membership currently around the 300 mark and July seeing the largest ever number of participants in its annual Grand Prix series, during which it raised £3,045 for its chosen 2016 charity Riding for the Disabled.
On the competition front, HPRC had a hugely successful Summer League series with its senior men's team topping the table for the first time in the club's history, senior ladies coming third and both vets teams coming second in their respective leagues.
HPRC prides itself on being an inclusive club, running regular courses for beginners (up to 5km) and intermediate (up to 10km) runners, with dedicated, trained members to run these courses. The club spirit and atmosphere at team events such as Cross Country and Summer League allows everyone to participate and feel welcome, no matter what their ability.
The Rushcliffe Sports Awards are an integral part of the sporting calendar in the Rushcliffe borough of Nottingham, the aim of which is to mark the achievements, dedication and determination of its athletes and the invaluable contribution of the voluntary coaches, officials and administrators. The awards take place on Wednesday 23rd November at The Becket School in West Bridgford, and HPRC will be going up against some of the best clubs in the area for the prestigious 'Club of the Year' award.
The England Athletics Regional and National Community Awards recognise the outstanding contributions made by these people who give their time, energy and expertise to the sport. Again, HPRC has been shortlisted for the 'Club of the Year' award and will be in attendance at the East Midland Regional Awards, taking place on Friday 21st October at the Quorn Grange Hotel in Quorn.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank all club members for being passionate about their sport and the club, and for helping to make it a very successful year for HPRC. Special thanks also go to those members who dedicate additional time to helping out at club events.
