A magnificent eight ladies from our club ran, and definitely didn’t canter, round Candleford on Sunday 25th October.

A special mention must go to …

… Jane Keig who achieved a PB coming home in under 1 hour and this following a parkrun PB the previous day – really well done, Jane!

… Linda Knox, who also achieved a PB, achieving the club silver standard – but Linda was so close to the gold standard that she’s now thinking of doing another 10k before the end of the year! (The Andy Reading 10k nr Bicester is a good one to go for – much flatter than Candleford from what I hear).

Before the race - all smiles!

Recorded times were as follows:

Debbie Morris 46m30s      Sarah Cross 53m10s     Sarah Gray 53m34s     Anke Black 54m37s

Jane Keig 59m20s     Linda Knox 60m36s     Emma Jenkins 65m11s      Claire Hubner 65m12s

And here are some superb photos taken by David Black, Anke’s husband – many thanks for these, David. I expect I won’t be popular for publishing these, but it shows the effort you all put in! At least Sarah C is smiling, or maybe it’s a grimace? (click on the image for a full size shot if you dare).
