Leader of the Pack!
HAC Member Sean Fenwick has capped a fine performance year by being crowned as the 2009 Sportsman of the Year in the Harborough Mail's annual Sports Awards, as voted for by its readers.
Fenwick has enjoyed a superb 2009 with reinvigorated performances throughout, including: 13th place in the Nottingham Half Marathon; 4th in the John Fraser Memorial '10'; quickest over his Round Leicester Relay Leg; registering his fastest 5 mile time in many years at Wolverton; and culminating in victory in the Leicester Marathon with a brilliant, well-paced, well-judged piece of running.
In accepting the accolade, Sean paid tribute to fellow club member Jason Pitcher, and also to Harborough resident and former HAC runner Gordon Lee, with whom he trains at least 4 times each week.
Sean will soon be stepping up to the Male Veteran 40 race category, and seems certain to severely challenge many of the Club Records in that bracket; the rest of the members will look on with marked interest!
Congratulations Sean,from all at HAC, and here's to an equally as impressive 2010!!!
