This week it was hot hot hot as 105 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 33 were first timers and 16 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 24 different clubs took part including University of Nottingham Triathlon Club and Kingston AC and Polytechnic Harriers.
We welcomed tourists from near and far including Rushmoor Aldershot whose own event was cancelled and Middlesbrough.
