Banbury 15

Chris Usher and Debbie Morris chose this event as part of their training programme for the London Marathon and were joined by James Newman.

300 runners set out on the circular route starting in Spiceball Park up the Southam Road before heading out into the country through quiet lanes to local villages including Cropredy and Claydon.

James came in at 1h56m29s, Debbie at 2h02m42s and Chris at 2h13m28s.

This event, though, is not chip timed – but no excuses, as it didn’t take long to cross the start line!
