Director Rosalind Joseph: “I think this training trip was a great start to the outdoor season. We’ve had great season brands/opening hours and PR, but it’s also been nice to take a look at some events we didn’t see during the indoor season and get started working on these as we prepare for the outdoor championships. Every opportunity counts!
