Mad March Hare 2020

Not the best of conditions out on the airfield today. At some points the runners were getting stopped dead in their tracks by the strong winds. I think the wind added at least 2 or 3 minutes to their times. Scott Walford was 1st overall in 34.50 and well over a minute ahead of the second runner. It didn’t make up for his…
