Sunday 5th of February Blackburn Winter Warmer 10 k Race.

On Saturday the 4th of February, we travelled to Blackburn for an overnight stay before Jenson Brogden and Aston Brogden took on the Blackburn Winter Warmer 2 k Race the next day. The race was being held at Witton Park so on Saturday afternoon we ventured there to check out the race route. Happy that the boys knew the route, we headed out for a pub tea before an early night. On the Sunday the boys were keen to get back to Witton Park to collect their numbers and timing chips. There were over 200 Juniors in the race with lots of club runners. The race started on the athletics track before looping around the park and then finishing back on the track. The boys did us proud, Jenson Brogden was 6th and Aston Brogden was 12th. Otley got a mention as the boys ran in because all the other runners were local.The race was really well organised and everyone was so friendly! The venue was great and we were very jealous of the track!
