Team Glen Callum all cross the finish line at Denso Ironbridge Half Marathon 2019

We are delighted (albeit a little bit sore) to announce that Team Glen Callum completed the “multi-terrain” 2019 Denso Ironbridge Half Marathon in aid of Cancer Research UK. The aim was to “finish” and it’s fair to say the hard work and training for this “undulating” half marathon certainly paid off.
