Kerrin Cocks shines in the Irene Ultra in South Africa - 8th April

Stroud AC runners travel all around the world to indulge in their passion for running. Predictably Kerrin Cocks was the only Stroud runner at Sundays Irene Ultra (South Africa).  In the blistering heat of 30 degrees, she ran 30 miles to finish in a fantastic time of 4h 34.
