The race is repeated in different venues around the UK, encouraging a broad mix of local and non-local entrants to take part

St Johns Ambulance were on hand to provide support for the reported 1,510 – 1,550 entrant starters!

Beverley Saturday Market in full swing 2 weeks ago just before the Bank Holiday

P.S.: It was impressive to see the age range of early finishers

P.P.S.: Does runing make you thin or do only thin people run?  🙂

 

Popular Saturday Market again in April – cold weather didn’t deter the many visitors

Comment

The pay as you go option and convenient access with local parking on the Green is attractive to the editor as an occaisional member and local resident who can pop in, shower and dress from home quickly

If you have a tendency to gain weight gradually without noticing and then try to lose it periodically but resolve to keep it steady this convenient venue could be right for you. The editor is an ‘air breather’ i.e. an aerobic ‘panter’ (as opposed to an ‘anaerobic load-pusher’ who just wants to maintain his expandable waistline rather than change his basic shape 🙂

Definitely worth a visit!

Weather break makes life easier for stallholders

A successful day for February was reported by traders.

The weather makes all the difference to trade and the persistent cold high winds we’ve had recently have made the stallholders task almost impossible

Traders get together to make a presence on facebook!
