DSD Athletics Sports Campus, Saturday 23rd December
Once Meet & Train could catch a breath after Gary's intensive speed session, they spotted Santa on the horizon laden with a big sack of goodies!
Before launching into the Awards, Santa presented a Christmas hamper on behalf of Meet & Train to Gary and Maria as a small token of gratitude for the amazing coaching they have given us in 2023. A year of PBs for most of Meet & Train!
Then, with the help of his little Elf Tadhg, Santa gave out the Meet & Train 2023 Awards. The winners this year are:
Liam McCambridge: Last Man Standing Award
