Gloucester Road Race Series

RUTH FULFORD and Barbara Thomas, of Cirencester AC, recently received their Gloucester Road Race Series medals.

Each runner has to run at least eight races in the 12-event series and CAC’s two racing stalwarts did more than enough to respectively win the gold in the FV65 and FV55 categories.

ON the Club front, Jo Musk has taken over as Ladies' captain. Ciren has a strong ladies' team and with Jo returning to form they are looking forward to a successful year.

Ruth Fulford previously held the role and will now be able to focus on her task as club secretary.
