Ropner Park 5km Trail Race
 

Adrienne Howard, Mandy Harrison, Jane Hunter, Janet Stables and Fiona Bainbridge travelled to Ropner Park for the last race in the Winter Trail Series, organised by Stockton Borough Council on 25th March 2018. Despite the clocks going forward the event was well attended and it was a glorious morning to run. The Park was full of spring flowers and everyone enjoyed the three lap loop of the lake and park. All but the finish stretch was on paths and the route was generally flat, save one hill up from the lake, which seemed steeper each circuit! The official times have not been posted yet, but first back for Teesdale Athletics was Mandy, followed by Adrienne and Jane. Fiona and Janet volunteered as Tail Runner and Marshall respectively. There were over 100 runners and it was a great location with cafe and facilities. Although there weren’t medals at the end, all runners were given a chocolate lollipop at registration, making it well worth the journey!
