we ran from coronation park poolstock, up through winstanley, down the two mile stretch, up to the stag and down to old engine, across to heinz and down through marsh green, locals nourished us at the stork hotel. then down to asda and up swan meadow back to coro park.i led all the way but joe loc and jeff barker had to be pushed in a asda trolly for the last half mile.

Never! Pengys never set foot on a roof even though he owns a roofing company.
