Very well done to everybody who braved the weather today, not only was it cold but the biting wind made it feel very bitter and caused many of you to lose feeling in your hands and feet making your efforts all the more admirable. At least it is looking like much milder conditions for next week’s landmark 40th Fly 5k.

Despite the cold temperatures there were still an encouraging 307 times recorded including 23 first timers – welcome to you all and I hope you enjoyed taking part enough that we will see you all again next week with even more newcomers I am sure, as well as lots of regulars also.
