Run Report for Event #367

Crumbs! Well done to the 583 hardy runners who felt the knead to leave their comparatively oven-like homes on a cold and frosty morning.
WK #367 (18)Central Park had all the ingredients of a beautiful cake with a dusting of icing sugar sprinkled over it. WK #367 (3)
The ‘usual’ start retained a rather soggy bottom, for the third week in a row, and it was decided that, rather than getting caked in mud, the viaduct start was the place to bake it happen. After all, we all loaf a viaduct start/finish!
WK #367 (26)
The runners gave it all or muffin and negotiated some icy stretches.
WK #367 (37)
The set up team had likened 'Death Valley' to a meringue, an icy crust with a soft centre.
WK #367 (38)
30 show stopping volunteers gave up their early morning to provide the perfect mix of a sprinkle of direction and a huge dollop encouragement. A big thank you to:

Gerry MCGOVERN • Jackie STRETTON • Paul BROOKES • Holly CHANDLER • Michael RICHTER • Jon SPRULES • David JEFFREY • Sharon HALDANE • Rebecca SMITH • Sue ARMSTRONG • Nichola NORMAN • Nigel COCKRELL • Matthew WILLIAMS • Susan HAMPSHIRE • Anne MACLEOD • Malcolm MACLEOD • Rich WALKER • Amelia ADLEM PROBERT • Jeffrey DOSSET • Neil CHURCHILL • Sue MAPES • Clive COXON • Gavin TILLING • Carole BEESTON • Toby HELLEN • Don COCKRELL • Nathan MCKEOGH • Amy RASSELL • Laura CHITTENDEN • Christine RHODES

By the end, clouds of steam were rising from exhausted finishers all, no doubt, filling more toastie and cooked than when they began.
WK #367 (145)
The results were double chocced and 44 of you achieved a pb!

You are all in for a treat next week when Paul - more Cobbler than Hollywood - is Run Director!

Donut forget your barcode!
