Run Director Ray Coward provides the run briefing

On yet another glorious summer's day, a 1,261 strong field including the usual eclectic mix of tourists from near and far (in some cases very far!), regulars, the speedy and the leisurely were led round our glorious Royal Park by a man who became the first person to collect 50 Token No 1's at Bushy. In doing so, Andrius Jaksevicius surpasses the 49 first place finishes achieved by Anthony Jackson (before he emigrated to the home of the 2nd best cricketing country in the world), so many congratulations Andrius!
