Thanks from DSD for a very enjoyable evening at the ‘Bray Sports’. As always we were delighted to be invited and our young ‘athletes of tomorrow’ enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the hard won beautiful medals! Would you please pass on our appreciation to the Bray Runners committee for the wonderful organisation. The events ran really well this year and the policy of limiting clubs to 8 athletes in any one event seems to have worked well. Looking forward to 2013 already!
