Weekly Roundup, Nov 4th – Nov 10th
Severn Bridge Night Race
This week saw the first of three Severn Bridge Night Races which always sells out fast (hence three races rather then just the one they started with). It’s a fast race and due to the time of year can be quite windy but the weather was kind this year. Well done to Mark Williams for taking home the Stella for winning his age category.
It’s a Good Effort, But It’s No Sharon Newell!
Just the two PBs to report this week from Mark Williams who finished in 20:26 (and then headed to Pembrey!) and Joanne Kilby who finished in 34:13.
