On a cool, very blustery November day, an excellent turnout of 27 Malvern Joggers braved the elements to take part in the 6th Croome Capability Canter organised by Black Pear Joggers. The 300 online entries filled up within an hour of opening and the 100 on the waiting shortly afterwards. 253 runners tackled the 6.5 mile muddy course around the lovely Croome country park culminating in an uphill finish outside the Church. Competitors were rewarded with a medal and goody bag as well as a free coffee provided by the cafe.
