The first 5km training race of the year saw a strong performance by Dan Thompson finishing in 16:39. First female was Hannah Laing ( we will have to get used to calling her that) in 19:27. A big thanks to the race officials Andy Torrance, Phil Welch and Charlotte Cox. Post race refreshments were excellent with food provided by Dan Thompson and Catriona Paterson, ably supported by Mr and Mrs Thompson and the clubhouse team kept all our glasses topped up with Overthrow from the Marlow brewery. Mike Illing hosted a challenging quiz. Full results can be found here April 2023 Training Race Result. See you all in May.
