Chris Clapham raced at the MARPLE 10K, an event in aid of the Firefighters Charity and clocked a creditable 58.44


The Thursday evening pack runs organised by a growing number of volunteers in response to a doodle poll are proving very popular and have been well attended. Last Thursday’s runners were rewarded for their efforts with a spectacular sunset


Thanks to Caity for the poll and the pics!

Chris and Caity travelled up to Fort William to race once again at the iconic BEN NEVIS RACE. Chris went sub 2hr once more to finish 54th in 1.58.02. Caity finished a fantastic 2nd lady in 2.02.14 winning a silver medal. Amazing racing once more by the two youngsters!
