1k @5k5 – Training Session Review

By Lawrence Kaile

Highworth 5 2017 – Event Review

19th March 2017

As a club we decided to join the Wiltshire Road Race League, you know, just for laughs. This, coincidentally, was the first event in that league for 2017. We managed to get a car-load of runners: Rich, Fran, Nick and Karen to enter.
