Saskia Atkins had quite a day. Arriving late due to heavy traffic, she made her way to the club tent while her mother parked the car. She then got changed and went off to find the start line unfortunately arriving after the race had started.
“I missed it” she said plaintively.
However, being made of sterner stuff, Saskia agreed to have her number pinned on with a solitary safety pin and she set off in pursuit of the rest of the runners, who by this time had at least a couple of minutes start on her.
Such was her determination she managed to catch and overtake 9 runners before the finish.
A magnificent, brave and courageous performance.
