All I Want for Christmas..........

…….is a new 10k PB. And that’s just what Nea Sneddon-Jenkins got when she ran the Westonbirt House Christmas 10k on Sunday. Nea was 5th lady overall in the race which is run on a mix of country roads and the beautiful Westonbirt House gardens. The route includes a tricky set of steps to deal with. Congratulations Nea.

Ian Barrett took second place at Cirencester where the club was well represented by members running and volunteering.
