Thank your 26.2 RRC volunteers!

A huge thank you to all of the 26.2 RRC members who made the 2020 race possible. The conditions were described as “miserable/comical” at times however the marshals were still commended for their enthusiasm and vocal support.

An extra big thank you goes to race director Bev Gow for spending many long hours making sure the race could go ahead.
