Members from Flo&Co Running Team were greeted with perfect conditions for the Great South Run.

Members from Flo&Co Running Team headed to Portsmouth to take part in the televised Great South Run.

The weather was just right for running after last year’s high winds made it hard going. The massive crowds that cheered all the competitors on were enthusiastic and created a great atmosphere.

Runners Mark Russ and Michael Heppenstall both beat last year’s time crossing the finish line together on one hour 41minutes, while Sarah Flourentzou finished in 1.25 with James Lucas completing the race in 1.8.

It was a great effort by the team on the day and they are all looking forward to their next races.
