WYWL Stainland 23rd Feb 2020

What a great end to another fantastic WYWL season, after the recent floods it was a miracle that Stainland were able to go ahead with this fixture but credit to them they did a brilliant job and along the way raising plenty of funds towards the flood appeal.

378 runners turned for the race, slightly down on other fixtures but plenty to create a cracking atmosphere during the race and afterwards for the raffle.

Well done to all our members over the 5 races who raced, volunteered and cheered all the runners on.
