David Catterick and Aaron Gourley

Border Reivers Half Marathon

RAF Spadeadam, Wednesday, October 26, 2011

David Catterick

Unusually for day races this is always held on a Wednesday, more surprising was the number of runners who could get the day off! Heading off from Durham at 8.00am with Alister driving and Phil clutching coffee we made steady progress towards the A69.
