#98…Records and Milestones!

I believe I can open with a whoop whoop this week as a colossal 531 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 93 were first timers and 57 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 37 different clubs took part. What a fabulous start to RED, dry or whatever January everyone is doing.
