Congratulations to the STAC and Crossgates Runners who ran the Brass Monkey yesterday. On a wet and filthy morning, 1700 hardy souls set off from York racecourse taking in the country roads through Bishopthorpe and Appleton before returning to finish at the racecourse.
The race is renowned as flat and an opportunity to put in a personal best. Due to the recent heavy rain, some of the roads were particularly wet with runners having little choice but to splash through puddles at times. However the rain started to ease and about 40 minutes in, the sun started to break meaning the runners had perfect running conditions, no wind and cool.
Personal bests were seen for 4 of the STAC contingent and many thanks to Mark Hodgson, Erica Bell and Nathan Vaughan for their support en route.
