An early start for Blewbury Brass Band as we urged on the runners with some rousing tunes. Our selection included ‘500 miles’, ‘Go the Distance’ and ‘Gonna Fly Now’ from Rocky. It was a lovely, sunny morning for the race and we had a prime location on Woodstock Road with runners travelling in both directions.
The band was particularly keen to support Honey Monster (aka principal cornet, Lewis Anderson), Fran Barlow, Christine Mellers (mother of Adam and Katie) and Alice Knight’s dad Phil. Thanks to the band’s encouragement, they all finished with excellent times!
Thank you to Christine and Amanda for providing snacks and the event organisers for looking after us so well.
