In glorious sunshine and with the mud frozen, it was a great trail run from Ide Hill on Sunday 25th February. Four runners (above left) opted for both loops. Thanks to Jim for organising and supporting. The next trail run, which would have been on Sunday 4th March from Dame Kelly's Cafe 1809 in Hildenborough at 10:00 (Happy's farewell run), has now been postponed.
Whilst lesser athletes were put off by the snow, eleven hardy SAC trail runners braved the Lullingstone hills for a trail chase, writes Jim Knight.
On the first loop, the red team, led by John Denyer triumphed over the “fast” blue team with a lead of about 2 minutes.
However, on the second loop the blue team had red in their sights with half a mile to go and sprinted past them to finish a few seconds ahead.
[Loop 2 - the victorious blue team with red team appearing in the distance.]
With one win each, the teams adjourned to the cafe.
