 Rhodes looking back at 5km
Looking back from the 5km mark on race morning - Will this be the view on 11July?
It sounded like snow on a Rhodes corrugated iron roof, but was 'happy feet' dancing. Some very excited reactions from the first batch who came off the waiting list for 2015.
While no guarantee for next year, the substitution facility on our Forum has worked like a charm these past 9 years with every request being met.
Needless to say the Forum is already active.

A bunch of high-five-ing, big smiling, twinkly eyed folk from the waiting list ... as well as some Mavis veterans ... that is who is smiling!

They had a tantalising first day of December. Invitations to the 2015 UTi Rhodes Run are out! Santa arrived through the ether!

Smiles all round!
