Event #295


Mild weather and ideal conditions greeted 677 walkers, joggers and runners this morning.  The volunteer team was ably led by Adrian and assistant Run Director Aiden, who completed the volunteering part of his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh. It is always a pleasure to see the Duke of Edinburgh youngsters taking their volunteering roles seriously and growing in confidence week by week (and height.. especially for our Silver and Gold participants).
