In memoriam - Johnathan Bennett

The club was saddened to learn of the recent death of former Eryri member Johnathan Bennett. Following a brutal attack 2 weeks ago in which he suffered serious head injuries Jon had been in a coma in Walton hospital, Liverpool but sadly passed away on Friday 13th February.
Jon, who was affectionately known as "Which Way?" for his customary enquiries to marshalls during fell races had not competed for 3-4 years but was aiming to get fit and return to running as a vet. He will best be remembered for turning up at races with his small dog in a pannier on his bicycle and competing competitively in trainers.
Two men have been charged with the attack and will be appearing in court in April.
The club has sent a card to his family and will be represented at the funeral. For details of the funeral arrangements contact Mike Blake.
