On Saturday 8th April, lone Stilton Strider Richard Gray travelled to the south coast to run the South Downs Way 50, a 50-mile trail race starting in Worthing and finishing at Eastbourne.
The route covered about 6,000ft of ascent with 85 per cent of it off road, but with some impressive pacing, Richard finished in a fantastic 9hr 39mins.

Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of the roles that people perform within the club – there are many many more who do very important things to support the progression of the club, but it would be impossible to name them all individually, so to everyone else I would like to issue a blanket thank-you for all your hard work.
