A dedicated group of Malvern Joggers got their new year off to a good start by taking part in the New Year’s Day 10k race in Hereford organised by the Wye Valley Running Club. The race is an on road course through rural Herefordshire that starts and finishes along the river next to Hereford Rowing Club. The course is undulating and offers a challenge to participants to help run off the festive season’s indulgences. Despite this the joggers put in some excellent performances with personal best times being recorded by Ben Toon (41:18) and Mark Cooling (52:40). Megan Judge came 3rd lady overall in a time of 43:50 and there were several age category winners too – Lucy Poole won Female over 40 category in 47:15, Kareen Mann won Female over 55 category in 49:53 and Stuart Brown won Male over 60 category in 44:50.
