Following my report in the last newsletter about our participation in the Town & Gown 2014 I’m pleased to announce we now have a winner of the Prime Energy Fitness Richard Pain Memorial Trophy.
This year’s winner was spurred on to take part by his daughter, who won the trophy in 2012. As they say on TV … and the winner is…
Professor Dermot O’Hare, of Inorganic Chemistry, Balliol, Oxford who completed the race in 55 minutes and 21 seconds.
This is a great time, especially as not only is Dermot a veteran but this was his first ever 10K. And it’s proof that we get some clever people attending our classes! I hope the professor’s efforts rub off on everyone else.
