3. Well done: to everyone who did the Litton fell race and Turkey Trot last Sunday, some excellent times and PBs – thanks also to those who supported, including Mark Rowlson on his bike (at the top of the hills of course 😌), Karen, Ken and Pat. What a massive turnout! Apologies to anyone I have missed.
