Eynsham Road Runners celebrated their 25th anniversary year in typically energetic style last Saturday, by clearing a new path for walkers and runners through one of Eynsham's hidden natural beauty spots, the historic Abbey Fishponds. A team of 16 runners created the 25-metre length of new path in record time - yet another PB (personal best).

Fishponds location mapThe slideshow follows the morning's progress, starting with a view of the north path before work began. This section is very boggy for much of the year and quantities of fallen stone from the boundary wall blocked access to the higher and drier ground. Afterwards, the way is clear for all to enjoy.

The Road Runners have arranged a packed programme for their 25th year. A Ceilidh in May, a fund-raising Garden Party for Helen & Douglas House in June and a 250-mile ride through the Wye Valley in September culminate with (at least) 25 members taking part in the Abingdon Marathon in October. Throw in the annual 10k Race in November ... and 2011 should be a year to remember!

The new path at the Fishponds was the second triumph of the week for Eynsham Road Runners, as they also beat Witney Road Runners last Wednesday in the local derby challenge.

UPDATE 10 March 2012: repairs completed
