The Bill Duff MBE Race100 is over!

What a fantastic event it was!

This was an informal event to celebrate Bill Duff's achievement in running 100 races during 2017, in aid of the Army Benevolent Fund. Over 80 members turned out for a straightforward 5km run round the Squirrel Trail. Everyone finished, and nobody fell and grazed their knee .. at least there were none that we know of.

We raised around £450 for the ABF, taking Bull's total well over £3000 in total so far.

The results are pretty meaningless, but the kep point is that Bill was the winner! There was, admittedly, a bit of fiddling going on, but the scene as Bill and sidekick Karen Campbell emerged from the trail to run through a Guard of Honour formed by his clubmates was just sensational. It was a Tunnel of Light that will be remembered for a very long time.
