I’m looking forward to the hallam chase tomorrow night. It will be the third time i have run it. I work as a postman at the local delivery office on Tapton Hill Road and four of us in total from the delivery office are running tomorrow. Last years Ladies Champion and winner of the overall race Katie Jenkins whom i work with is trying to defend her title. An interesting fact is that Katie is a local girl having grown up in Crosspool where her parents still live on Ryegate Road.
