- It was lucky 13 for Walden Triahlete Nicki Davies on Sunday at the Stortford 10k Run.
There was 353 runners out on the course, which was set out on a lovely scenic route taking in most of the local hills and made for a hard run home as the last part of the race was heading home into a strong head wind.
Nicki came home in an impressive time of 1hr 17min 04sec which gave her 13th place out of 112 women.
