Saturday was the second week at the new start area by the car park. Thank you to all the runners for being patient as we bed in the new run arrangements.
We have sent a scanner away to be repaired, so the scanning took a little longer this week. It should be back with us soon.
This week 299 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 57 were first timers and 76 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 21 different clubs took part.
