On a gorgeous Sunday morning in the Oxfordshire countryside, Dawn & Simon Goldfinch took part in the 30th running of the Eynsham 10k. The race itself is part of the County Championships with all the big clubs from around the area taking part and fielding their best runners in both the men’s and women’s categories.
With perfect race conditions (and the biggest selection of cakes you've ever seen for afterwards) the race itself was very well marshalled with plenty of local support encouraging all those taking part. Both Maidenhead athletes ran creditable times and have vowed to return next year for what was a great morning of running.
