Charndon 5K

Last Tuesday, young Gail had something of a blast from the past as she went over to Charndon near Bicester for their annual 5K race, hosted by Alchester RC. Back in the mists of time, when we were all vaguely young there was a series of races in that area called teh Fox Four and they became something of an annual event. The series has long gone, but a couple of the races still remain and Charndon is one.

The course is pretty fast and flat, as is shown by the host of club records that come from the race, including the senior men's best of 15.39. On this occasion Gail ran around the course in 19.02 and therefore set a new record herself, whilst finishing as 3rd lady overall. read more
