This popular New Years Eve race was run by 27 BRJers. Conditions were surprisingly good and 4 PB's were secured by Daniel Mitton, Chirag Godhania, Alice Synge and Sarah Watts. Team BRJ was led home by the increasingly speedy Daniel Mitton, and the ladies were led by Anna Douglas. Obviously the bag piper did his job well at the 9th kilometre, encouraging everyone up the hill! And a nice packet of crisps and a beer made a nice change in lieu of the usual medal. An enjoyable event, well done everyone.Read more
