We hope you all had a lovely New Year and are recovering well with some hard earnt training! We’re two awards down, and three to go, with the next one being the most consistent performer of 2011.
You may see some names in here that have already appeared in the two previous award lists, but in defining the most consistent performer, we’re talking about those guys and gals who have finished a number of races in consistently high positions across 2011. They may not have won many or indeed any races, but there are the people who continue to set high standards in the races they enter.
Once again, we’ve produced a short list below, along with their performances so that you, the reading public can cast your vote as to whom you feel deserves the accolade of most consistent performer of 2011. Just to outline, our criteria for the most consistent performer is that they have placed high in the races they enter i.e. top 10 and in the context of the number of entrants, and that they have done this in at least 3 ultras across the year.
As runners, we understand that most ultra runners tend to target between 2-4 what we would call ‘A’ races with a number of small events dotted in between, so hopefully that gives you an indication as to why we have chosen to short list certain people. As always, we welcome comments from people if you feel we could improve the system, so that next year we can make it bigger and better.
