Advent kicked off with an active weekend for WTC
This weekend started with the usual Parkrun with Phil, Clare, AHS, Sarah and Andrew plodding around the 5km course in Didcot. No PBs this week and AHS pulled up with a calf injury just a km into the course. After finishing, the race was really on to get the calf iced, rolled and ready for the evenings entertainment, being an 11km cross country race from Stonor Park.
Along with some of the members of RunWallingford, WTC members: Harry Gow, Phil Wortley, AHS, Clare Wortley and Sarah Soles took part in varying distances between 7km and 21km over a cross country course that saw very few flat sections in the dark. There was a great atmosphere and everyone finished with a smile and AHS's calf held up, even if it was a bit sore.
Sunday saw a different kind of 5km, with Harriet Hardy, Kate Edwards and Chris Jacobs running around Wallingford dressed as Santa raising money for StyleAcre. The Wallingford Santa Dash is always a fun event and perfect for the family.
