Peter Miller had an awesome run on Sunday, winning the Hoad Hill Half Marathon! He ran it in 1:37:56, a brilliant time for such a tough course, which included running up and down Hoad Hill (pictured below). He was over a minute ahead of 2nd place! This was a race in which he finished 4th last year.
On Saturday, we had a lot of runners parkrunning. Tony Bacon ran his best 5K as a Haverhill runner, coming 2nd in the Cambridge parkrun in 17:20.
