A beautiful sunny, albeit wintry day heralded the 184th running of the Colchester Juniors event. Despite some icy paths, the volunteers were able to accommodate 124 runners with some slight tweaks into the grass to avoid particularly icy parts of the tarmac.
First finisher was Tyler Sutherland in 08:12, first female was Ella Licence in 08:53.
Runners were not put off by fairly cold conditions. Sixteen got personal bests today, with eleven first-time runners.
Thanks and have a good evening Ash
