Run Report # 324 16th March 2019. Windy!

The windy weather didn't put people off  - it was great to have over 160 runners!

Talking to runners it seemed that you were helped up the hill only to be met by a force against you as you battled across the top of the field - well done to all of you!

A big thank you to the volunteers - the wind chill factor was more than we had expected!

Well done to Peter Thomas on his 50th park run.

I feel alot more comfortable as run director now I am not worrying about cars leaving the car park whilst people still running - so thank you to those of you using the main Upton Court car park.
