Hazelwood park run – Event 35

Again, what a lovely morning for a run. After the downpour of Friday, the course was little wet in places but this did not deter 123 participants that either ran, jogged or walked the course in the residual warmth of the autumn sun. Of these, 13 were first timers and 21 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 16 different clubs took part and we welcomed visitors from Colchester and Minehead as well as guests from our local neighbouring running clubs at Walton, Datchet and Staines.
