Matt Hibbert, Sean Foord, Jon Tilt, Riley Woodman, Dave Blackman
Last year’s winners were:
Sarah Merritt, John Tilt and this is what was said about them.
Very friendly and always gives a shout out to other athletes. I remember that Sarah Merritt gave me a shout out on my first run for the club. Since then she’s done so at every given opportunity and excitedly asks me about how it went afterwards. It really helps to have that kind of support in the club. Far from being just a supporter she has had a great run of top positions at road races and regularly enthusiastically throws herself into multiple events at track and field.
She’s an all round class act and great representative of the sport.
Not only is Jon a brilliant coach he is always willing to put himself out for the group and the club. This is through his positivity, encouragement and dedication. He’s a brilliant athlete always pushing himself to achieve the highest level of fitness and achievements. This in turn rubs off on his athletes making him a fantastic training partner.
He can make even the hardest sessions bearable and enjoyable with that famous Jon Tilt smile.
