The New Forest Marathon, New Milton - 14th September 1986

It's the New Forest Marathon, which starts in the middle of New Milton and heads out through the New Forest via Brockenhurst. Nosher's hanging out with CB-radio chum Brian the "Blue Flame" at the time and so we get to drive over in the Corvette to see the runners still doing their thing as they run through Brock.
