Blue sky and sunshine at Brafield-on-the-Green for round 11 of the AGA All Comers championship

This is a fixture that I’ve always looked at and thought “I’d like to go there”, so we did, and what a glorious day! It was well organised, there were plenty of runners and I had lots of AGA colleagues with me. Anyway, that’s more than enough words, let’s have a look at some photos!

This lady has been (and still is) very supportive since I took on the job of looking after the AGA sponsorship, although I have a feeling that I may be in for a telling off for using this photo!
