What's your New Year's Resolution?
By Benny Coxhill, Race Director
St Lawrence: the patron saint of tough guys! As the Romans barbecued him on a gridiron trying to make him reveal the treasures of the church, he just laughed and said: “I’m done on that side, turn me over!” So every year we pay tribute by sending fun runners over Wolstonbury in the scorching summer heat of Fair Day.
Your resolution for this year? Join them! It’s time to start practising now. The five mile route is off-road, apart from a short stretch along New Way Lane. It’s usually quiet but watch out for cars and cyclists and wear something bright so they can watch out for you.
See page 12 in January Hurst Life for the training route.
