Great running times at the club as we welcomed our very oldest of club associations Civil Service, as our guests. They are a great bunch and we were proud to continue the association that has existed since 1905.
So pleased to welcome new runners to the fold and the day went off like a dream. Note to self. Don't ask Claire Giles to be a pack leader again soon. We shouldn't have to do press ups as part of our running surely?
