15 Squirrels ran this one today, with some fab support from Sue, Mark, Rachel, Karen and Pete. The men's team was, very frustratingly, just pipped for first place (on overall time, apparently) by Trent Park, but two trophies were awarded to us - Ed Price was 2nd MV40, and I was 3rd FV55. I didn't quite beat my FV55 10 mile club record (17 seconds out!) but I really enjoyed the race - a great finale to the running year!
Particular congratulations to Paula Holm - a stonking time for her first 10 mile race! :clap:

Fantastic running Squirrels! Thanks for the supporters too! :heart_eyes:
Tough route that one! Was windy too! Thankful for the extra days after Christmas this year, but still 3kg over weight.
Great way to end the year.
Thank you so much for the welcome, advice and encouragement from fellow squirrel runners and the awesome support on the course - especially those cheers in the finishing straight! They are the only thing that got me under the 1:15:00 when my legs were ready to give up! I was hoping for sub 1:20:00 so was ecstatic with this! Really enjoyed my first outing in an NHRR vest!
