Jan and Brian “persuaded “ me to enter this one , and they were quiet right to .
A proper trail race with all the mud , rocks and other things to put you on your bum if not watching your step .
After watching the canix race start which involves a lot of noise and much laughter ( don’t worry if you are not keen on dogs , they go 15 mins before us ) we began a couple of miles of slog , on and off road . Cake !
Once into the woods it was standard fair for such a race with twists and turns , roots and holes on a well planned and marshalled course.
Runners from some of the Welsh clubs which you might not normally meet in out league races make for new targets to chase .
On a couple of occasions, there is a view of where you have climbed which on a clear day like today was super . Cakes !
The choice of two routes in the last couple of miles adds a twist in the tail .
The wooden medal will stand out on my rack .
They was 9 WVR out today with Jan and Brian collecting their age group prizes . What DID that cider taste like Jan ?
Well done all .
Did I mention the cakes ?
