I am a big fan of this little race. It’s just around the corner. It’s really friendly. It’s a nice little route suitable for all levels. It’s well marshalled. You always get a nice gift at the end plus, lots of cakes. Lovely.
This year’s race was a little wetter then I was used to. When a mainly on road race advises you to wear trail shoes, you know it’s not going to be great out there.
The route starts with a lap of the track which was interesting as the bend and exit were flooded. We then run out on local little roads and quite a bit in the open space of the Hogsmill. We then came back onto the track, which at least cleaned our shoes again, to do a final lap for the finish.
Although a lot of club members said they would run the rain seemed to have put them off. In the end there were only 4. No records were broken and it wasn’t a big turnout, but it was still a lovely run.
Thanks to Moustafa and Binkie for the support.
