The winter certainly arrived at Black Park this week with a temperature of 3C as the runners set off, and a slightly chilly wind across some stretches of the course. Despite this, 496 people braved the cold and ran, jogged and walked the course with 54 recording a personal best (perhaps extra keen to get back for a warming coffee!). This week we welcomed 24 first timers and runners representing 32 different clubs. A special mention this week for our first 2 female finishers, Katie and Rachel Clutterbuck, who both achieved personal bests this week, congratulations.
A huge thank you to our heroes in high-vis:
