TEN Watford Joggers travelled to Cliveden House in Berkshire on Sunday, December 30, for Burnham Joggers' annual and this year especially eventful six-mile multi-terrain race.

Paul Emery led the way home despite missing the start and falling having chosen spikes on the frosty ground.

Bryan Taylor fell approaching the finish, his cut hand needing stitches, while Richard Hilson's tumble in a similar position caused concern over the course. George Chalstrey coached Ann Renew past Andy Lord, who made up ground later.

Meanwhile, Dickie Dickinson wisely chose the roads for the Buntingford 10-mile road race as he begins his 75th year.

Soon to compete in the Sunday cross-country league, Dickinson completed the race in 1.58.02, and expects to run this year's London Marathon.

The ubiquitous Bob Wallace followed Cliveden with the Hyde Park 10km on New Years Day, and recorded a course and season's best of 42.37. Julie Al-Zoubi also ran, clocking 49.38.
