Report

Warm weather greeted everyone today and we had a strong turnout especially for the long course. Caroline's courses were a little more twisty than usual which made them feel fresh even for previous visitors to our Wandlebury events. The cakes were also very popular and we apologise to the later finishers who missed out.
