Well done D10k and XC Teams!!

WOW,  Today I’m overwhelmed by the strength of such a small but mighty club!  Not only did we put on a successful Denmead 10k Race with a completely new race Committee but we also fielded a strong cross-country team.   For me this gives me strength and depth in our team.  Your commitment and dedication in everything you guys do makes me very proud to be a Strider. Thank you! 

It makes my job as Chair (whatever I am) very pleasurable
