Plum running club member awarded at the City of Worcester Sports Awards September 2017

Worcestershire sporting best were honoured at the City of Worcester Sports Awards September 2017 and presented by long-time supporter Steve Cram CBE.

The 14th annual accolades, delivered in partnership by Freedom Leisure and Sport Worcester and supported by Worcester City Council, took place at the University of Worcester Arena.

Sixteen categories were hotly contested with winners announced and presented by Olympian, world champion and television athletics commentator Steve Cram.

BBC Midlands Today sports presenter and former Worcester News reporter Dan Pallett hosted the event.

In the sixteen categories included Disability Sports Person of the Year and we are proud to say the winner was our Pershore Plum Plodder, Lee C Greatbatch

Lee has limited sight, but this does not stop him when running. Yes he needs a guide runner but at sub 24 min 5K’s and sub 1hr 50min 10K’s he needs a quick one!

He has completed over 51 park runs, 10k races and a half-marathon and is always ready to put himself into the next event.

From all at the Plums well done Lee greatly deserved achievement.

Pershore Plum running club has recently enrolled members into running workshops run by English Athletics on Sight awareness and guide running further assist Lee and other blind runners wishing to run with our club or events contact us for more information
