Our summer trail runs continued this week with a sublime run in Woburn. Big thanks to our run leaders on the night for winding your way through the deer. Shout out to Tom who decided to run to Woburn, do the run and run home again! VC James took on the Fartlek Whistle of Torture for the first time on Wednesday. Thursday saw the return of CAPTURE THE FLAG and it was victory in the woods for the orange team. And Katharine took out the fun runners for a stupendous run in the very hot sun on Friday.
Friday saw the return of the Beer Mile! We had a great turn out of LFRs and the one runner from the LB Tri Contingent.
Results as follows...
