It’s such a shame we couldn’t be together in the traditional sense (everyone in the same place at the same time, on the same day!), but it’s been fantastic to be able to hold the event in the virtual world and for our community still to be able to connect with each other!

Unfortunately, due to tightening restrictions on social gatherings, we have had to cancel the community event we had planned to hold, for people to collect their medals.  Instead we will be delivering and posting medals to you over the next few weeks.

Although we didn’t focus on winning times this year (due to everyone running their own routes) we do want to say huge congratulations to those who logged the fastest times:

Chris Smith (Male) – 00:19:35

Liz Carrothers (Female) – 00:23:25

Nate D (U18) – 00:24:28

Laurence M (U11) – 00:25:57

This has been such a lovely benefit of the event having been virtual this year!

We’ve also had participants joining from far afield, and have had #ShelfordSelfie posts shared from Wales and Austria!

Perhaps something for us to think about, to make future events more incluisve?
