Isle of Wight Festival of Running

All smiles in the photos below - WWRR club runners anticipating the joys of running on this beautiful island.
Conditions were excellent, if a tad warm ...
The runners notched up some impressive results - Jason winning the Farringford 5K race outright.
Graham also made an impression - unfortunately on his head, and on a metal gate, after a tripping accident. We hope he is fully recovered now from the fall.
Thanks to all who marshalled and supported, and well done to the runners!
