450 runners, which is currently the race limit, registered and most of those made their way to the village of Stoke St Gregory. Thanks to an efficient parking system run by our volunteers everyone parked up safely and registered in the Williams Hall well in time for the start of the race.
The sky was pretty bright, the course was pretty dry and the race was pretty amazing.
Plenty of personal bests this year we have been told. Hannah Taunton who finished 4th overall (about 3cm short of 3rd place and highest ever overall finishing lady!) in an amazing time of 36.36, better than last years female overall winner.Oliver Burrows, who came 7th last year in just over 37 minutes managed to surprise the pack and take first prize in the mens race in 35.42. Both improved their times by over 1 minute 20.
The huge turn out of both runners and spectators made this race yet again one to remember and raised a big sum of money towards the new playing field pavillion. Thank you very much for your support.
