January 8th 2023
31 runners joined us for the first Colliers Wood Canter of the new year. The blue sky was a welcomed bonus, especially with all the rain we'd had the night before leading to a very muddy course.
First home was Chris O'Donnell who completed the 3k course in a time of 16:44. Up next was the winner of the 5k which witnessed Steve Hargrave finish with a time of 20:33.
As the runners began to filter through the finish line, it was great to hear that there were many newbies to the canter. It would be great to here your feedback on todays run.
Thankyou to all of you who competed today and we look forward to seeing you all next month for the February edition.
Lastly a big thankyou to Sam Garside Run Director, Dale Mellor on Timing, Ryan Stocks on tokens, Aston for collecting names and Jay, Robin and Karen on Marshall duty as well as Julie juggling the role of Marshall and photographer.
