Firstly, thank you to everyone who helped me set up the New Year’s Day Novelty. As with organising any event one relies heavily on help from others and I could not have managed without support. Congratulations to the 5 people who ‘bagged’ all 24 control sites correctly.
There were many more runners not listed who accompanied those shown in the results. It was lovely to see so many children.
Thank you to everyone who took part and for the comments I received. After all the wet weather it was a blessing to have a dry day!Geraldine Russell

Participation is at your own risk. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult. Bring clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather conditions.

There may be dog walkers, cyclists or residents on pavements and footpaths – be aware and give them priority.
