Alphabetically speaking we had a real cross section of participants on Saturday. Athlete names starting with all letters of the alphabet except Q, X, Y and Z took part (although not sure if Unknown really counts as a name!) with Andrew (6 plus 1 Andy), Stuart and Emma (4 of each) and Sharon and Steve (3 each) among the more popular monikers.
We also had Richard Purnell completing his 50th run and our usual band of unbelievable volunteers.
This week 198 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 45 were first timers and 40 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 16 volunteers:
Paul NORMAN • Ann-Marie BULCOCK • Victoria WILLETT • Chris BALDERSTONE • Bob WILLETT • Wendy ASHLEY • James ASHLEY • Benjamin FANSHAWE • Michael MCINNES • Stuart BOND • Molly BOND • Rachel BOND • Janet COUTTS • David OSELTON • Paul WEEKS • Sam GLEDHILL
