As the year draws to a close, we thought it would be great to highlight some of the standout performers of the year with the Ultra168 awards very kindly sponsored by the good folk over at Footpoint Shoe Clinic. But rather than us decide who deserves the recognition, we thought it would be apt to ask our readers what you thought.
We’ve come up with a few simple categories, and over the course of the next five days, we’ll be posting a poll a day, asking you to tell us who you think should win each award. We’ll then close it off and announce the results early in the new year. The categories are:
- Best male performance of 2011
- Best female performance of 2011
- Most consistent performer of 2011
- Most improved runner in 2011
- Best over 50 performance in 2011
For those that win one of our awards, rather than have a random trophy, we thought it would be nice to award them with a top of the range Salomon technical t-shirt and the name of the award emblazoned on the back of the shirt to remind all those who run with them just how good they are 🙂
For those of you who make the effort to give us your vote, we’ll draw a name at random and throw you a couple of tubs of Perpetuem for your trouble, valued at $130. So without further ado, here is our first poll for male performance of the year. Watch out for our female poll coming tomorrow!
