It was a Super Sunday at St Michaels Hospice Run Hereford event this weekend for the Couriers who were out in force recording fantastic times in hot conditions as prizes were won & personal bests tumbled!

It was all smiles in the sun for Couriers Kerry Wathen, Jim Smith, Steve Herington & Russell James as they picked up the team prize for the 10k, Paul Jones ran a superb time of 03:12:50 in the Marathon coming in 3rd place, Barry Reynolds continues to impress with a fine 2nd place (1st V45) recording a time of 01:13:50 in the half Marathon as Russell James continues to regain his form finishing 1st V50 in the 10k (5th overall) in a time of 38:52.

Donation made to Longtown Mountain Rescue.

The Couriers recently made a donation of £50 to Longtown Mountain Rescue from the receipts from Hatterall Hammer in recognition of Mike Fawcett’s awesome performance in the Spine Challenge.
Graeme Adkin Treasurer of Longtown Mountain Rescue Team said “We rely on donations such as the one you have given us.  We bought our new vehicle this year, but it won’t be too long before we have to fork out for a new one to replace our land rover, so all funds are gratefully received thank you”.
