It was a beautiful morning but made up of two temperatures! In the shade it was chilly but in the sun it was hot! We had 299 runners not quite reaching my forecast of 304!
It was good to welcome lots of first time at Ashford runners and several visitors from other areas. I met up with a young guy who normally runs at Harrow Lodge and who had run Folkestone 10 mile on Friday and had stayed overnight to run at Ashford. We were “blessed” with the return of Jason from the deepest darkest North and he “paced” Becca – not sure she felt the love! We also welcomed runners from Glasgow, Kingston, Eastbourne and High Wycombe.
All in all a lovely morning with no problems – apart from the sun on the scanners which caused a few delays but we hope to address that by moving into the shade.
Happy Easter to you all
