The one with the welcome drizzle

Well what a run that was as 170 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 28 were first timers and 27 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 23 different clubs took part. The tourist travelling the furthest distance was from Johannesburg S.A.

Congratulations also go to Ned Potter with an age grade of 82.74%
First male and female finishers were Ned Potter ( new PB!”) and Emily Moore.
