"If a job's worth doing...give it to Ellie and Ian at Barnes Fitness. They organised today's first ever Rutherford Appleton Running Event (R.A.R.E) and it was awesome. In fact Brilliant And Really Nice, Everyone Said (B.A.R.N.E.S). The home team of marshals and RecSoc helpers also did us proud, thanks everyone."
