Some photos of today’s trail run, writes Grazia Manzotti. Thanks Jacqui for taking them they are fab, and thanks Jim and Lesley for organising another great run and for providing the water and jelly babies and thanks Sylvia for the excellent cake. The weather was such a treat.
Jim Knight adds: "Such hard work, these trail runs!"
Recipients of awards above were Geoff Kitchener (T&F GP), Dan Witt (XC), Heather Fitzmaurice (XC), John Stephens (athletic achievement), Mike Allen (most improved GP), Lesley Knight, Keith Brown and Pauline Dalton (1st GP team), Andrew Milne and Suzy Claridge (2nd GP team), Andrew Hutchinson (handicap 1st), Simon Hallpke (handicap 3rd).
Only the toughest of the tough made it to today's trail run, writes Jim Knight. Excuses like "my legs hurt from my last marathon" and "I'm running London next weekend" were heard from the wimps. Those who attended were treated to a delightful, scenic, hilly 10.5 mile route led by Grazia.
PS. Lionel didn't wear the helmet on the run, but did have to ride home wearing his trail shoes.
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.
