News: 2015

It was a long and trying English champs race on Saturday for 15 runners from our magnificent club...more on this to come (write-ups please, you know who you are!)... including a forgotten dibber, some very wet conditions underfoot and no shortage of cramps. Anyway well done to all who suffered on the day and special thanks to Ian Roberts for providing much needed refreshment and encouragement en route!
