Conditions underfoot were as good as they can be, and Donna James, Heather Bell, Jill Libby, Rosie Gatenby and Diane Brown coped well to finish in 111th place, and excellent achievement.Conditions were also perfect for the Fountains Abbey Park Run with another bumper turnout of 472.  Adrian Saunders finished in 53rd place, in PB 22.08, Nigel Morgan 219th in 28.02, David Palmer 235th in 28.22, Lindsay Goom 296th in PB 30.12, Ann Butchers, in her first ever park run, 313th in 30.46, Wendy Bennett 425th in 37.23, Ian Codling 443rd in 39.17, and Marian Codling 444th in 39.50.
