John Hoy Trophy

John Hoy was a club member who tragically lost his life, along with his three children, in Thailand on Boxing Day 2004. They were on the beach at Khao Lak when a tsunami struck. Only John's wife, Nim, survived. Since then, members that compete in club track championship races from 800m to 10 kms earn points towards the trophy with the winner being the person that has earned most points over the course of the six races.


The trophy is open to senior and master men and women. Points are awarded on a handicap basis  runners earn points using the internationally recognised Age Related tables. These tables adjust finish times based on the gender and age of each competitor so a 50 year old woman can compete on an equal basis with a 30 year old man, for example.
