5. Well done and thanks

To everyone participating in races in the last week, including the 11 who represented the club at the Worksop Summer League on at the same time as the England semi-final. Congratulations to the fell runners at Black Rock as well, and quite a few of you who got up early for the Sunrise 5K. A special mention to those who undertook the Triple 7 parkrun challenge last Saturday, some even cycling in between the runs on a really hot day. Many thanks also to David Patrick and family for the invite to the annual garden party for runners in Beeston; everyone had a lovely afternoon.
