Individual Runner Achievements for 2018

Media Admin

03 Jan 2019

In short, running is an individual sport and running is a team sport. Yeah that's not not so short but is a fitting description. At the end of the day, a PB belongs to an individual runner. The same with an endorsement, invitation and a medal. So, it takes a well oiled training group to produce a good runner but each runner has to account for themselves at the end of it all.
