Results from Event #35, 16th January 2021

Well done to all of today's runners, many of whom braved harsher conditions than normal. This included the Flurry from Surrey, the wading of puddles, ponds or lakes, frozen backsides, Canadian ice balls and dirty Vinnie Jones tackling.

This made the the total of 225 runners particularly impressive, especially when some of the more frequently used phrases involved "staying in bed".

Of the 225, we saw 18 PB's and 15 first timers. We had representations from 44 different running clubs, 4 of which are new additions to the Fly family:

Carn Runners

City of Plymouth Athletic Club

Dereham Runners

Your Town Runners

We also have a number of milestones, a big well done and virtual high 5 to the following:
