We were lucky – no rain – just fog. It was a cool and a bit damp – so good running conditions.
We can tell the cold weather is coming in as a number of people started a bit late including someone who ran the course with 2 right foot trainers – well done Mark!
We had another good turnout today with 126 people taking part. Our only visitor was from South Manchester. We had 5 first timers and an amazing 28 people got personal best times.
Thanks to all our volunteers this week including a couple of people who were first time volunteers. Everyone was feeling the cold by the end of the event but it all went like clockwork as usual. We are short of volunteers for the next few weeks so please volunteer if you can - just get in touch at email@example.com .
