Snow and ice fails to deter Sole Sisters

Members of Sole Sisters Running Club brave the icy conditions.

The snow and ice put an end to most local sport last weekend but it failed to deter a hardy group from local ladies’ running club Sole Sisters, who took part in a 12-mile training run near Bitton Station on Saturday.

Club member Karen Gaman said:

“A huge well done to the Sole Sisters who turned up on Saturday to attempt a 12-mile run – it was a brilliant effort despite the uneven ground and it was some of the most beautiful scenery to run in.”

Sole Sisters recently started a six week beginners’ course and they will be repeating the first session next Monday (28th January).

The club’s premier event of the year, the Bradley Stoke 10k Run, will be held this year on Sunday 9th June.
