There is one way to end a drought in the West Country - get us to organise an event at Umborne Hall !

We had 95 entries for this year's Umborne Ug 10k although only 83 started the race! There were 30 Fun Runners. The hot sunny days had changed to cooler damp conditions for this race and when all was done and packed away the heavens opened, so we were very lucky. Thanks to all the landowners, marshals, water station helpers, drinks and food caterers, backmarkers and many more who helped in so many different ways. The sum of about £860 was made for our hall extension so thank you for your support. Photos: (courtesy of Helene Buse) can be enlarged by left ...
