LDWA Tanners 20 – Sunday 19th January 2020
A&D duo Christine Costiff and Gill O’Connor made the most of the crisp winter weather at the 42nd Tanners 20 event, near Leatherhead. Following frosty start just after 8am, the pair navigated their way between checkpoints in the Surrey countryside, running through mud and up hills, and climbing over styles. A perfect winter trail event, all round.
