Sandhurst Parkrun – Yes, the test event for the Sandhurst parkrun took place this weekend, which means it’s almost here!

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to getting out there and trying it ourselves! A couple of pictures below…
Sandhurst Cross Country – This Sunday saw the running of the Sandhurst home cross country event, and it was a proper cross country event. Wet, muddy, it had all the makings of a perfect race. There was some great running on display, with some photos below:
