Club Captain Karen Gedge said "The weather was nothing short of evil but marshals and helpers, friends and family of club members all turned up and went out to stand around in the cold and wet for hours, whilst others braved the course as runners and all came back with stories to tell." The club would like to thank everyone that helped with the event and braved the elements.
