We are already half way through May and it is lovely to hear the birdsong in a morning as we are setting up and waiting for our runners to arrive. We had a bit of added excitement this week too as there were two deer sighted in the park. They must have forgotten their barcodes though as they didn't come through the finish funnel ;P.
Usually the first people we see are our fabulous volunteers and it goes without saying that we really appreciate their help, our high viz heroes this week were Clive COOK • Dave MONAGHAN • Dominic ASHFORTH • Francine ASHFORTH • Glen HARTLEY • Helen PENN • Jacqueline M EDWARDS • Jamie PENN • Joanne EGAN • Kim HUNT • Matthew FISHER-GILL • Nick LARKE • Pete KIRK • Piper LARKE • Susan ELDER • Victoria RIDDIOUGH thank you everyone
