Run Runcorn Bridge There was a big field running the annual Run the Runcorn Bridge race, including several comic book heros! Despite the chilly start, Martin produced a PB, Keith ran his best 5M since records started and there were fine debuts by Fleur and Donna. Well done to Fleur who was first in her age category.
