Sunday 26th July – St Aidan’s Virtual 10k

Sunday 26th July – St Aidan’s Virtual 10k

You can run the race anywhere you like though, you can enter here   Update! Below you’ll find an alternative Danefield route that I finally got round to checking.

Kept strong coming down hill and managed a negative…
