Achilles hasn’t healed as quickly as I had hoped so not up to this now - gutted. I will hopefully make an appearance with some kids in tow for cheering duties! Race well Squirrels and enjoy!
I am afraid my sprained ankle is still a bit sore so that means I’m not up to it now. I’ll be there with James though. Clare Hooley
