Saturday 20th October – Park Runs

Report from the Club President, Mick Jeffrey, venturing south to the capital running at Highbury Fields: Last Monday I had a bizzare Jack Robertshaw-esque accident. Running to work I tripped over a near invisible metal hoop and clattered to the pavement. I suffered numerous cuts and bruises, an egg sized lump on my hip and a massive dent to my ego!

Three… two… one… blast from the hooter and we were off. There is only one way out of Richmond, straight uphill from the start – a steep one mile climb onto some very undulating road…
