A big thanks to everyone who came last night and made the annual MBH awards dinner such a success! Over 55 Harriers, friends and family made it to the Union Hotel for what was our 5th year of awards.
The awards and presentations followed a superb 3 course meal, with a few surprises thrown in.
First up was a 40th Birthday surprise for Ian Raggett, who had no idea that his other half, Donna, had been secretly liaising, texting and meeting with Ian all week to collect the secret cake for the evening – women, they’re sooo devious!
After a brief (or not so brief) run down of the club’s achievements for the year, including Scott Markham’s amazing double Ironman, Nick Harvey’s end to end on a fixed wheel in 5 days, Sam Lawley and Phil Sanger’s JOGLE on a tandem and, of course, Tim Drew’s win at the Marazion Middle Distance, Kyle Keary’s Australian Triathlon, where he represented GB, our Britanny cycling trip, London Marathon, Birmingham Half and all the other great and exciting things we do as a club.
