It Beats Christmas Shopping

With the offer of a parkrun on a Saturday morning and a Cross Country run on a Sunday morning, Postal Harriers had the perfect excuse to get out of Christmas Shopping. The blokes out there have another 8 days to get sorted anyway! Bags of time lads.


I wasn't there to witness the cross country so I'm relying on the accuracy and quality of the Whatsapp group conversation for my evidence. What could possibly go wrong?


The consensus of opinion seems to be that you all ran well, you had some great support and Emily is our newest Bake Off contender for her cheese scones. I don't want to spend too much time considering the image of Si having a snooze in the bath but thanks for sharing it with us mate!


Here are the full results. Well done to DGB on claiming 5th place in his age category. Congrats also to Di, Amy, Si and Danny for top 20 finishes in your respective categories.








Gloves are off as Carl means business.

Andy Ellwood 29.59 and quite possibly one of the quickest tail walker times ever!
