A great turnout from the club on a wet evening.  Some fabulous PB’s and lovely to see some runners coming back from injury and illness.  I think 21 athletes from the club took part, this compares to just 4 last year.



Strong finish from Jayne and Fiona!


The race was won by Simon Wright and Simon, Ben and Jay took the mens team prize.  Not to be out done, the ladies also took the team prize, well done to Janet, Rose and Karey.

Great performances all round, hopefully its a bit dryer next year when we hope to win prizes again!
