What a soggy event we had on Saturday. I think it was one of the wettest events we have ever had. Thank you to each and every hardcore person who came along to take part or support those taking part. This week 139 people splished, splashed, ran, jogged and fast walked the course, of whom 10 were first timers (you really do deserve a medal for coming out today) and 13 recorded new Personal Bests (you were all in rush to get home and dry). Representatives of 16 different clubs took part. We had visitors from Combe Martin, Exeter and Marlow.
We were fortunate to be overtaken by a huge team from Brannams Medical Centre who provided 14 of the High Viz Heros names below plus several others who just came along to help and support. Thank you very much for your help and support.
