A trio of Freedom athletes braved a bitterly cold Sunday morning to race at the fourth running of the Bass Belle 10 miler at Bassingbourn. Why the name Belle? Firstly, Bassingbourn is linked with the famous WWII flying fortress the Memphis Belle. Secondly, the course itself is beautiful or in French - 'Belle'. It is a fast, flat course which consists of 8.5 miles on road and 1.5miles off road along a grass track. James Thomas ran a stormer, finishing in 01:09:17, 11th in age group. Amanda Maylin finished in 01:31:35, 20th in age group, with Gareth Sharp finished with Amanda in his sights in 01:32:32, 58th in age group.
