Plym Trail Winter Weekend and Storm Force 10

A great weekend of running….

It was the Plym Trail Winter Weekend where Dan took 2nd place in yesterday’s Half Marathon.
Jane took on both Marathons, so after yesterday she definitely deserved her mocha-stop halfway and even managed to finish 2nd female!
Storm Force 10 was the order of the day for a bunch of our runners this morning. A crisp and frosty, start soon warmed up with everyone finishing with some great times!

Well done everyone!
