HARRIERS RUNNERS OF THE YEAR 2017

Only 50 people have voted so far. You have less than 4 days to go.

After the success of the online voting system in previous years, we are using it again to pick our 2017 runners of the year.
All votes will be from this page. Before you start you will need your URN which is your England Athletics Number. This is printed on your England Membership card and on your Harriers Membership card. On the voting page you will be asked to enter your token, that is where you enter your URN.

Any problem with this please contact us via email info@staffordharriers.co.uk

Below is an alphabetical list of Harriers compiled by the committee.
They have voted as a committee for Harriers that have contributed the most, over the last twelve months, to the Harriers. From their votes it has been decided that the top ones, in each category, should be put forward to you the members to vote on. If you want anymore information about Harriers achievements then go through the race reports for 2017.
Once you have checked all the nominations, then click on the voting icon at the bottom. You can then vote for one person in each category.

There is no way that anyone can tell who you vote for. The system will record that you have voted but not who for and you will not be able to vote again.
Be sure to enter a vote in each category before you press the submit button, as once you press the submit button you cannot go back to it. We had a small number last year who voted only in one category because the send button was pressed too soon.
Don’t use the ” exit and clear survey” button this will end your vote and you won’t be able to vote again.

Voting is open to all adult members (2017).

 

Voting will close at midnight on 8th February 2018

 

The categories are

  • MALE RUNNER OF THE YEAR
  • FEMALE RUNNER OF THE YEAR
  • VETERAN RUNNER OF THE YEAR (Male or Female)
