We hope you had an enjoyable run and we'd love to welcome you back soon.

Event#251

Well,..... that didn't go according to plan now, did it? After being lulled into a false sense of security with a fairly bright and sunny start to Saturday morning ,I was duly rolling my eyes and muttering about ridiculous weather forecasts.
Ye of little faith and all that! As not long after the starters orders we were in for a good old cloudburst and quite a soaking! . Good Job we're such a jolly bunch and found the whole thing very amusing  :D

A special early mention then, for this week's volunteers, who probably got more of a soaking and windy battering than any of us this week - Thank you Dave MONAGHAN  •  David CARBERT  •  Helen PENN  •  Jamie PENN  •  Kim MCBIRNIE  •  Matthew FISHER-GILL  •  Nick FRERE  •  Nick LARKE  •  Pamela TARBET  •  Pete KIRK  •  Piper LARKE  •  Victoria RIDDIOUGH for your stirling efforts in truly horrendous conditions.
