A nice spring morning greeted the set-up team as we met at the Angel and Harp and we were soon off setting up the course. Once done it was just a matter of waiting for the runners, joggers and walkers to turn up. At 08:45 I was getting a bit worried as there seemed to be more volunteers than runners. But within 10 minutes plenty of people had joined us at the start.
This week 97 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 13 were first timers and 29 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different clubs took part.
