Another 50 Horsham Joggers continued with their spring marathon training runs by running a 14.3 mile route through Copsale, Maplehurst and Nuthurst before returning to the start in Broadbridge Heath.

Two members of the club must have decided the chances of good weather were much better in Italy. Caroline Brandsen and Margaret Wadman went racing in Portofino instead.
