Every month we honour a member of Bournville Harriers. You can nominate anyone who has had a positive impact on your experience at Bournville Harriers in the last month or so, whether by cheering you on at a race, keeping you company on a training run, keeping you sane through your latest injury, or by doing something else someone might deserve recognition for.
All we need is a name and a brief explanation of the reason you’ve nominated that person. We will sift through the nominations at committee meetings and may bring some of our own. The whole point of this is to recognise a wide array of members for doing all of the little things they do to make our club great!
The winner each month will win a limited edition Bournville Harriers Pin Badge and will get a short profile on the website. We have built up a winners’ gallery, which serves the dual purpose of honouring our members and giving visitors to the BvH website a flavour of who belongs to our club and why. Please note that you will need to be a paid-up member to win!
Nominations can be made by contacting the chairperson here or by speaking to them on a club night.
MEMBER OF THE MONTH 2021
Member of the month January Kristy Mabbett
How long have you been a member of Bvharriers?
Almost 3 years, I joined from the Beginners’ Course in 2018.
If you see me at the Pavilion bar you can buy me a. ………………..
Raspberry gin with Lemonade and lots of ice!
Favourite racing distance?
Worcester 10k-this was the first 10K I ever ran. I went with Jon, Ian, Ruth and Michelle who I’d met on the Beginners’ Course and it was one of the most fun days out I’ve ever had. We ran it again in 2019, and even though we had to miss 2020 for obvious reasons, I’m hoping we can all go together again this year.
Proudest moment as a runner?
Winning the 4x4x4 relay with Legalicious (still hoping for Xenofon to paint a mural of us on the wall of the changing rooms!!)
If you were trying to entice someone into joining Bvharriers what would you tell them about the club?
You’ll meet some lovely people who will change your life!
