Amanda Willey ran Weston Athletic’s Hangover 10K as her first ever race. It was an impressive feat on many levels: the run took place on 1 Jan 2015; Amanda hadn’t run that far previously; the course had two nasty hills; and the conditions were windy, Amanda crossed the line in 1:03:44 (203rd). Old-timer Richard Hensman finished in 45:11 (54th)
