There was a day when so many Wye Valley Runners wanted to run this famous race that we used to hire a coach. Only 2 of our lads braved it this year and to be honest, looking at the results, the race does seem to have lost it's gloss, with only one runner getting under the 30 minute mark. Steven Flowers was first home, running 36.43, not a PB, but as he is building up his mileage for the Dublin marathon in October, a pretty good effort nonetheless. This was good enough for 45th place overall. Lea Wood, who has been looking good in training, achieved a PB with 38.13 and is rounding into form nicely for the Cardiff half marathon in a few weeks.
