Thanks to everyone who made Saturday's race a success.....
Update - we made Â£1875 for East Cheshire Hospice!
All the marshals, timekeepers, and everyone who helped in the hall and at the car parking, special thanks to Dave Jackson who was out at 7 am and spent 3 hours marking out the course, then went round and collected them all in again !
Everyone who baked cakes for the post race refreshments, they must have been good as they all went !
St John's Ambulance, who fortunately didn't have too much to do
Cheshire Police, who weren't initiiallly able to come but in the end did a fine job for us.
John Honey Physio, to sort out your tired and aching legs post-race
Bryan Dale Photos, doing a sterling job as ever
North West Water, for letting us use their reservoir even though it was closed.
Our race scrutineers, Sue and Ken Rushton, who seemed happy that we knew what we were doing..
and finally everyone who ran the race, we hope you enjoyed it.
plus everyone else I've forgotten.
The results are here ......
a fine win in the men's by Tim, despite his mum telling me he's just out for a jog - how many have said that - and Diane retained her title from last year. interestingly almost 75% of the field were veterans.
Photos - and video ! of you all are here
Hope you all enjoyed your post-race beer. Numbers slightly down on last year, possibly due to the Tatton half the day after, but we don't mind too much..
We hope to see you all again next year though !
We'll let you know in the next couple of days how much we've raised for East Cheshire Hospice.
Thanks once again, Julian Brown, Alison Horsfield, Dave Buxton and all the organising team !
