On a very blustery day, when our gong got blown over, 79 runners managed to get out of bed, beat the elements, ignore the rugby and run a damp Rushmere course strewn with sweet chestnut seeds to make the going a little trickier than normal. Amazingly we had 5 PB's against all the odds. Well done you five.
We had 9 new runners who had remembered their barcodes and a few who didn't. I hope you will all come back and try again.
We entertained runners from Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Torquay and Maidenhead.
First male home was Ashley Gamble in a PB time 20:54 with Matt Styrka in second place just 10 seconds off his PB.
First lady was first timer Suzanne Janes from Littledown Harriers in 23:21 and second lady was Louisa Rothery in 24:46
I hope to see many of you next week.
