Tony Johnson Award
Tony was a key part of the club from the early 2000’s until 2016 when he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease which, ultimately stopped him from running. To say his time at the club was integral to the current success would be an understatement and we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to him for his leadership, straight talking, dogged determination and useful inventions. Tony was chairman of HJ from 2011 to 2015. Read More

His contribution to the 10k was pivotal and he almost single-handedly drove the event forward for eight years to its current status as a regular feature on the annual race calendar. Read More
