Walking, jogging and running in the air

It was a very colourful festive themed takeover by Kippax Harriers this week. Amongst the 177 participants we were honoured to have Elves, Santas and Snowmen all taking time out from their busy schedules to join us.

We returned to a muddy Route A with a locked gate for runners to contend with. This one-off steeple chase element probably accounts for just 9 PBs this week. Kate Winstanley ran under 27 minutes for the first time. Neil Pimblott ran his 3rd PB on the bounce. Helen Evans hit the 25 minute mark on her 10th run. Mark Raffaelli, Becca Hattrell and Harry Trapps clocked up their 50th runs. Judy Lankester and Fiona Robins ran their 100th. Well done everyone!

The event was made possible by 33 volunteers: Linda DURKIN • Paul DURKIN • Ronnie BRAY • Sue LAKIN • Terry MIDGLEY • John Anthony MESSENGER • Ian STOREY • Helen COWLEY • Judy LANKESTER • Gillian LAMBERT • Les KITCHING • Andrew BURNS • Craig WORLEY • Grace BURNS • Melanie BLACK • Clare COPLEY • Sandra SEED • Rowan VERITY • Lindsay GEORGOPOULOS • Lisa VERITY • Eleanor HUNTER • Helen LILLYWHITE • Sharon BUTTERFIELD • Alan DAVY • Colm O'HARA • Cheryl STANTON • Mark GEORGE • Daniel HORN • Kyle HARBOURNE • Graham HOY • Helen FIRTH • Carolyn DAVY • Danny MANN
