I came across this story and picture on the Racing Post website. Conor is a professional jump jockey, tomorrow he’s attempting a sub 3 hour Chester Marathon before riding at Uttoxeter.
The reason I’ve posted this story is because the picture on the Racing Post website is from the Fairford 10K, it looks like Coops in the background. Conors family are all members of Bourton Road Runners. His father Ian himself an ex-jockey, was race director of the Bourton 10K for many years. I’ve posted a link to the story for those interested. A bit of a sad story attached. Good luck to those running Cricklade tomorrow.
