Neurology department takeover, run report 653, 25 Jan 2020

Thank you to the neurology team from Leeds Teaching Hospitals who joined us this week to raise awareness of brain disease. And thanks to the 5k Your Way team who are here the last Saturday of each month to support people living with cancer and their carers.

Well done to Andrea Barras who beat her own VW70-74 age grade record with 86.14% for her time of 25.51. Caroline Tolan ran her 150th, Sarah Underwood, Jill Hobson and Chiara La Sala joined the 100 Club, Edward Aveyard ran his 50th.

Next week we'll have pacers, let is know if you'd like to pace or be paced. There will also be coffee and cake on offer over at Wrangthorn. And don't forget to bring your old trainers, which will go to prisoners in Zimbabwe.
