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.
AUTUMN ROAD RACES - 2019
Plenty of strong contenders over various events, but Rodney McCulloch took the shield with a number of strong performances. Rodney has got himself shiny new PBs over 5k, 10k and half marathon distances in the past few months. Well done Rodders!
SPRING MARATHONS - 2019
Lots of super performances through the spring marathons, but just ahead of all of those competing at London was Jon Stone's 2:50 at the Newport Marathon. This made him the fastest marathoner competing for the club. Super running Jon!
WEDDING DAY 7K
Friday 27th July 2018
Another great turnout for the club at the 38th running of this local event in Bushy Park. 19 Shifters lined up at the start, and right on cue the heavens opened for the first downpour in a long while, giving the park a much needed drink!
A great run for Thomas Ziegel, who finished in 7th position, in a time of 24:50, his first sub-25 min finish at this event.
Hot on his heels was Dan Domeniconi, in 24:55, finishing 1st in the Mens V40 category. And Dan also picks up the SHAEF Shield to accompany his bottle of Proseco and V40 award!
Sunday 22nd April 2018
Some big performances across the board today at the biggest event in the racing calendar. A very hot day in contrast to the recent weather made for some difficult racing conditions, but Will Rawling took home the shield after an astonishing 2:50:59 finish, less than 2 minutes off a PB.
THE BIG HALF
Sunday 4th March 2018
A great show from the club at the inaugural Big Half in London. 78 mins from Ian Fullen was a worth winner of the shield.
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!
