"Please can I have a show of hands of who's keen to run for BOK in this year's Dorset Coast Path Relay on Saturday 3rd September?
Last year I hoped that a small but fast team would challenge Wessex's dominance. We managed it, for a while, but the sheer number of runners that WSX can put out meant that they got away from us. We did however win the handicap trophy with our small number and fast time.
