The SHAEF shield is awarded at events where several of the Shifters are taking part. The winner is agreed amongst the runners based on who performed the best on the day; recording a PB, beating a target time or achieving a great result.
CABBAGE PATCH 10
Sunday 15th October 2017
A huge SHAEF turnout at a fantastic local event saw the Shield claimed by Clayton Bannon, who was first Shifter home in 62:10. Several excellent performances from the group and the social gathering afterwards meant a great time was had by all.
Sunday 17th September 2017
We counted them out, and we counted them back in again. 8 Shifters went to Copenhagen and despite the prep and unbeliebable weather on the day, all performed well. The Shield was retained by Ciaran with his 1:30 clocking.
WEDDING DAY 7K
Friday 28th July 2017
The biggest turnout from the club so far and several good performances. The Shield was claimed by Ciaran who put in a terrific performance to continue his trend of strong results at this event over the past few years.
HARRY HAWKES 10
Sunday 16th July 2017
Despite a large turnout from the Shifters, everyone had various degrees of dissapointing runs and it was unanimously decided that there was no deserved winner and we had jolly well buck up our ideas.
GREEN BELT RELAY
Sunday 21st May 2017
Incredibly tough choice for the shield this weekend but in the end it had to be split. Skipper Ian Fullen who did the most amazing job arranging the whole weekend and ran a cracking leg. Shared with Thomas Cassidy who despite doing a brutal leg on Saturday, when skip was injured stepped up to the plate again on sunday and changed his easy run for another killer. So many other deserving recipients too but well done guys.
Sunday 23rd April 2017
After a few unsuccessful attempts, Ian Haylock managed to dip inside three and a half hours for the first time. He recorded 3:29:36 to make it by with 24 seconds to spare. Great effort by Ian and well and truly deserved his sub 3:30 clocking.
Sunday 9th April 2017
On a very tough day, with temperatures unseasonably high and many runners struggling in the conditions, Chris Boylett comfortably broke the 4-hour barrier to record a Marathon PB with a time of 3:45:32. Well done Chris!
