It is with great sadness that we heard over the weekend of the passing of George Page.
Our recent club members may not know much about this great stalwart of the club, he was one of our (re)founding fathers and without him our great club would not even exist, let alone embody the spirit it currently has.
He was our club treasurer for over 17 years, spanning 3 different decades, after taking up the role back in 1976.
We would like to pass on our heart felt condolences and thoughts to his family.
Below are some tributes and memories of George from some of his former clubmates.
It is with great sadness that today we heard about the passing of club member, Robbie Livermore, who died yesterday.
Robbie joined our club in 2014 along with members of his family. He was a great runner and clubmate who represented the club across a range of distances.
Robbie was an immensely popular member of the club. He was funny, good company and a genuinely likeable person.
He will be sorely missed.
As a club our thoughts and prayers go out to Robbie’s family; especially Karen, Callum and Briony, at this sad and difficult time.
Well done to Kevin Hood for taking victory ahead of Darren Flynn and Danny Hughes. Samuel Charlton ran the fastest race in 10:39 and sets a new course record. With Jack Armstrong in 2nd and Andy Graham 3rd. Sarah Robson ran the fastest ladies race with a 12:41, and also sets the mark for the course record.
I will include this into an overall table with the results from the previous events.
Next SGP is 30th May. See you then
