Seven Clapham Runners met bright and early on Saturday 29th November to run the final Sri Chimnoy/ Run and Become 10km race of 2014. There was a field of around 400 runners, blue sky and a great atmosphere at the start line. The mild weather helped, and an amazing four PBs from our club runners (the seconds count!)
There was fierce competition for the Women’s Vet 60s trophy, and Serena proudly took second place behind distance running legend Eleanor Robinson.
