Running Wild in Rother Valley!

Well done to all those who took part in the Rother Valley 10k and Half Marathon this past weekend, it was amazing to see so many people there!

The event started amidst perfect weather and not a drop of rain and this carried through the entire event, we could not have been any luckier. 

The Half Marathon route was fast and flat with 4 epic laps around the main lake within the country park. As for the 10k route, it was the same route but 2 less laps. All in all, providing runners with scenic views and a good sweat on to boot.
