Unfortunately, only Christine (photographed above) came forward to share her milestone prior to the briefing so we couldn't give a shout out to the rest of you on the day, which we LOVE to do! Don't be shy - be proud of your achievement and share it with us!

Huge kudos to Robert MOLE of Bromsgrove and Redditch AC who visited us for the first time today and left with an Age Category record for VM45-49. Robert was second to finish in a time of 18:35. Well done Robert.

Finally, thank you to Ian STEELE for the wonderful photographs this week. It's not often we have someone on camera duty (although judging by my own finishing line pic maybe it's just as well.....!) and Ian has uploaded several hundred photographs to our Flickr page. Link at the bottom of this report.

 

See you all next week!
