The 12th Annual Awards of The Hogweed Trotters RRC
The 12th Annual Awards of the Hogweed Trotters Road Running Club was held on Sunday 14th April 2013 at Horton Village Hall. This prestigious event celebrates all standards & abilities of the member’s efforts throughout 2012 and was probably the best ever years racing since the running clubs formation back in 1999.With so many excellent performances it was an extremely difficult task to produce the short list of nominees let alone the individual winners for the 15 awards on offer. The highlight of the event is awarding the Club Champion with the ‘Clutton Cox Solicitors’ Trophy’ As always the Awards were produced by Mr. Bob Bell, hosted by Mr. Anthony Febry, supported by Mr. Colin Axford (handing out the prizes) and Mr. Will Gray (opening the envelopes).
We would like to thank all those involved including Mr. Stephen Chandler (Powerpoint presentation), Mr. Daryl Hanson of Hansonite Entertainments for the music, Keith Miles Catering (and Mrs Miles!) for the delicious food and Brookers Mobile Bars for providing the liquid refreshments!
