The run starts off in front of the main house in the park before passing through the woods, and every now and again the surface would change from a stony track to a woodland path and back onto tarmac! Now I don’t like the wet and I don’t like mud, but I was plastered in it when I finished, and yes we did receive a medal when we finished so another one to add to the ever increasing collection.
What a super day for a run, this must be the first dry day we have seen for nearly two months and even the sun came out – about flipping time! I was the only MBH there, but don’t worry I made up for the rest of you!
I really enjoyed this race although it was very undulating, wet and muddy in places. This is definitely a must do again race. There were four long and steep hills – all torturous well on par with some of the GP races, but it was far more fun than the GP races as no one really seemed to be bothered about their time, and there was hardly any club runners.
800 runners in all, most of them were just aiming to get round. I was there with my friends George and Eve mainly helping to get them around and have a good yarn with some of the other runners, at the same time raising some money for Cancer Research.
I think everyone knows someone who has been affected by the big C.
