Vizionteering - Monday 30th October 2017

[posted Oct 31st 2017]

The clocks went back, darkness came and Vizionteering happened! Thanks to Run 4 It for hosting, Colin Salisbury as planner/organiser and Ian Shread for the SI timing. Well done to the course winners: Jess Tullie quickest overall, and Oscar Shepherd who, not satisfied with his gold medal in the inter-areas relays on the weekend, showed all the men a clean pair of heels.  A first Vizionteering win for a junior.
