OQ Running Achievements
Tuesday 2 May 2017
Over the past couple of weeks numerous OQs have been busy pounding the roads (and desert) to take place in marathons, ultra-marathons and
other races. Congratulations to each and every one of you who has taken
part; many of you have raised money for worthy causes.
