Yesterday evening saw the third and final race of the John Carr series (all together now: “awwwwwwh!”), but cry not fellow runners, for there are only about 349 days until we can revisit our favourite waste water treatment works to compete in the 2016 edition. Queensbury Running Club had a truly fantastic turnout to the event, so to all those who took part: thank you for doing our club proud!
