Beech Tree and Back event report

It is well documented how tough a year 2020 has been for businesses. For TRB, I think we have been relatively lucky. It’s been frustrating, and sometimes a little challenging, but with both Dan and I having full time work out-with the company we’ve not suffered from the downturn like many other business owners have.

With the clocks going back, there was some limitations on the amount of daylight hours that would be available to participants of the Virtual Migo Mile for October.

Race Organiser

2020 has, easy to say, been a challenging year for us all. Whilst appreciating the severe hardships and, in some cases tragic events this year had brought to some people, I thought I’d share the somewhat trivial concerns of being a race organiser!
