In terms of fastest individual times, Danielle Hodgkinson was our leading lady in a rapid 17:32 and setting a new ladies course record in the process.
However the plaudits go once again to Sam Charlton who ran the 5k route in an astonishing 15:36 – a new PB for him as well as the WGP course record! Unbelievable that both records have been broken!!!
Thank you to Bill, Simon, Steve, Donna & Stephen for their support in making the event possible.
Full results are here – see you at the next one!

Adam won the opening SGP of the season, coming home in a combined time of 17m20, with Kayleigh Dunn and Lee Pattinson completing the podium in 18m06 and 18m30 respectively.
Sam Charlton was the fastest male of the evening, equalling his own course record in 10m14. Not bad for supposedly taking it easy!
However the performance of the night goes to Erin Prior, who broke her own female course record of 12m40 with a tremendous 12m26!!! A brilliant effort indeed!
A fantastic turnout of 41 took part this evening. Full results are here.
