Was Runner Of The Month for

May-21
May's runner of the month is a long time LERC'er, who is actually just a couple of weeks shy of celebrating the 10th anniversary of his first race in LERC colours - at the Heritage Series, which parallels nicely with the last of his races, the 4th day of the Tour of Derwent Valley Series.

Between those two races, Mark has clocked up 240 races, with a good number over every discipline, which makes his recent improvements and PB's even more remarkable - as he certainly hasn't been slacking for the last 10 years!

This month has seen Mark complete the ToDV series, with finishes of 7th, 6th, 6th and 4th, to finish in 4th place overall and also take home the V40 prize. Mark also took on the two LERC events for May and recorded PB's in both! Starting with the mile, Mark was caught in a great group fighting it out for position, which took him a second off his previous best and then he took over 20 seconds off his 5k best, which was set 3 years ago, to record 18:25.

Mark's always been a great club man and a runner that has often gone under the radar and perhaps not always received the credit and recognition he deserves. It's great to see him making waves that can't go unnoticed and I'm sure those improvements will keep on coming!

Well done Mark

Other worthy contenders for this month include Matt Peel, Kim C & Joe W-M who double PB'd at the LERC events, Vic C, Tim C, Laura and Tom B for some awesome Half-Marathon efforts and Stacey for her winning of lots long things!
