Oxford’s Town and Gown Run 2012

Almost 4000 people competed in this year’s event to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.  This year brings the 10km event to it’s 31st competition, and has seen more than million pounds raised for the cause. Amongst the runners was a surprising number of friends and family – not to mention SuperKick’s very own Jeff McConville, who after a prolonged time spent away from competitive athletics, made his return to long distance running. He completed the course in a brilliant 48 minutes – but this was some 20 minutes behind Ethiopian Edao Weily who not only won the event, but is thought to have set a new course record.

The competition was supposed to be started by Christine Hamilton but after a very lengthy speech, was ultimately started by a man called Derek – presumably because he had the gun and needed to get rid of the bullet…

Congratulations to everybody that took part!
