Well, we are back at home and spent this morning down at Wythenshawe Park.
Paul (hidden behind Jan in the above picture) and Jan kindly agreed to pace Sue to a personal best time, despite cool, rainy conditions for this morning’s 261 participants. Sue finished the 5 km course in 24.40, one minute 46 seconds faster than her previous best, on her 74th appearance here. Well done Sue!
Meanwhile I finished last, as planned – it is actually a requirement of the ‘Tail Walker’ to finish last, which I did in a leisurely 53.36.
That gave me a chance to take a few photos, most of which are out of focus…
The pictures are below the captions.

Richard and Greg vie for position
Behind the leaders
Further behind the leaders
Even further behind…
These guys were some way ahead, finishing in a little over 17 minutes
Richard had now pulled away from Greg
Mark was enjoying a gentle jog
This chap was taking a break from run directing… Yes Andy, I know it’s not a race!
Now listen Greg: “It’s Not a Race!”
Well, a jolly time was had by all, and it was great to see so many friends after our eight week sojourn in Canada.
Thanks again to Jan and Paul for pacing Sue to her PB.
Full results are here.
