Well hello 2020 and what a way to start the new year with a couple of records and a missing finish token.
A massive leap in registrations plus the usual new year resolutions saw an event record 446 participants descend on a calm, rain free racecourse where even the ever present puddle at the 2nd marshal position had halved in size. This does bring about a certain amount of congestion at the hill with the two way traffic, so remember to be polite to the dog walkers and other course users (the model plane displays are quite something in the summer months).
The second record was set by a visitor, Alistair McDonnell, who sprinted round in 15.53, knocking 6 seconds off the previous course record.
At the other end of the scale the walking group had its largest turn out with over 30 people hiking the distance, 3 of them attaining personal best times.
Lastly we have to announce the loss of token 345 which was handed out 35 mins and 22 seconds after the start of the event. A Facebook appeal has gone out and we remain optimistic for its return.
Remember the horses are in action this weekend so no run on the 11th, we are back on the 18th
See you all then
