It was children’s day and Cumalot set off with her son to set the run. With HRA giving the harebrief, it was bound to be a fuckup, and he explained how we’d be following colourful postits, only for the run to be mostly set in powder. We were immediately foxed as we set off across the rice paddies, with Horny Monkey quick to do a trademark faceplant!
Onto the road and amazingly we cut out to the highway – over a km of hardtop running along the highway with cars gusting fumes at us. Some guy from Middlesboro led the way with Poo, Big Top and I following. The 2nd check came after 1.8 miles – so the pack was strung out only the front group kept together by the confusing dance through paddy fields.
Finally we hit some decent trails and the 2nd half of the run was great. Pretty fast paced – about 5km in 30 minutes.12th January - CSH3 - Cumalot,
