Running the Cancer Research UK Tough 10k

Group Members Kristel, Richard and Chris battled glorious weather today to run a challenging 10k which included 430 m ascent in the Pentlands; one of the Cancer Research UK Tough 10 races. Great running skills all round – their lunchtime practice sessions have clearly paid off!


Double viva celebrations

Congratulations to both Richard and David for successfully defending their theses at the same time! We ran a lab sweepstakes on how long it would take them both to finish and couldn’t resist the “wedding cake” photo when they made it out.
