408 runners and 29 volunteers helped us to celebrate our 3rd Birthday.
We acknowledged the contribution of the two guys, Matt Owen and Duncan Anderson, who were instrumental in making this wonderful event possible back in 2016. Duncan is pictured here at the pre run briefing.
One unwelcome guest at the party was the wind! As you can see from the information below, the strong westerly wind made going very tough on the outward leg of the course, so I bet everyone was pleased to see the marshal at the turn and feel the wind on their backs on the way home.
As a birthday treat we had a group from Run Things who supplied us with 8 pacers who were pacing different times between 22 and 38 minutes. Here they are pictured with their organiser Clare.
This week 408 people ran, jogged and walked the course, of whom 44 were first timers and 34 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 32 different clubs took part.
The event was made possible by 29 volunteers:
