Jean Brown and Katy Thompson were flying the Clayton flag making the long Katy T 1journey down to Llanberis. Once again they did the club proud with impressive runs. Jean completed the course in 4:31:31 earning her 7th F40 (84th place overall). Katy was 6th F50 (153rd Overall).

Excellent stuff Ladies!
