A Spectator’s View

Today was a very cold day, it was so cold my feet were really, really, numb - at least if you were running you were warmer (we hope). The volunteers were very helpful with every single job, and did well in the cold. A special thank you to Sheila who came in a wheelchair after hurting herself, to do the scanning.

There were a lot of young runners, some came near the top, some near the bottom, but well done all. The three who came with Winifred we hope you will come back when you have barcodes and get your names in the results.

There were some milestones. One ‘one hundred’ - Rotimi Oyengunle - well done. And a very loyal person (219 runs at Roundshaw) is Jonathan Sharrock doing his 250 - very well done.

We had drinks after at the Pavilion cafe in Mellows park which was good.

Roundshaw is on next week as usual, then Christmas Day at 9.

Bye for now,



Welcome the visiting runners;


Well done to those getting PB’s;
