Thanks to everyone who came to run in the sunshine and to all the ELO helpers – including Tim Harding for handling the SI and results plus Tim Hayes for his barbecue expertise.
For the second time this week Grace Molloy had the fastest time on our top course.
And well done to Lee Curtis for a good run on Green less than a week after completing the West Highland Way in 27 hours!
Please note that all courses may meet some nettles so full leg cover is recommended. (However no bear spray is required)
