Spoffoth Gala 10k

Richard ran in the Spoffoth Gala 10k race on Monday 26th August. A hot day proved to make the undulating course even tougher, finishing 80th from over 400 in 50:25. An unusual event occured at around 4km when a hornets nest was disturbed and lots of runners were stung, some quite badly with the air ambulance called out!
