W/E 16.12.2023 - Mob Match & More XC fun!

**Colney Lane Parkrun Mob Match 2023**
This week we have more XC fun – Firstly we started with our Annual Mob match versus the lovely Norfolk Gazelles at Colney Lane Parkrun . As we reported on our Facebook page on Saturday we able to win back the 👑 ‘Mob Match crown’ 👑 after the Gazelles had won the year before. 80 WAC members turned up, too many to add to the collage so we went with some of the best outfits & group running photos provided by club chair Katie Whitmore, along with 70 Gazelles and after a quick calculation from the organisers our total position score was 8611 against Gazelles’ 9886.
Great running by all and a brilliant atmosphere on the day.

Next up we had 12 members south of the boarder in Stowmarket for the popular ‘Let it Stow’ trail half marathon hosted by Raw trail events – majority donning 🌲🎄🤶🏼🎅🏻 festive attire 🤶🏼🎅🏻🌲🎄for the slog through the Suffolk countryside.
