Muddy Boots – Report

It was just as the song goes MUD GLORIOUS MUD, MORE MUD, AND EVEN MORE MUD.  As ever in true grit sytle the above 30 members ran the race and it was great to see Phillip Elliott Dick racing and coming 4th overall.  Kirsty Vogan and Cassie did fantastic too and I cannot confirm for sure but they may have won the ladies prizes.  By the end of the race all I wanted to do was get changed out of my very muddy shoes and clothes.

By Stephen Robson When I entered this race at the end of last year I was expecting a chilly but enjoyable race to blow off those post Christmas cobwebs. How wrong I was! Neither chilly nor enjoyable were accurate for this year’s race as it seems that someone ordered near apocalyptic weather conditions for the day, and boy did we suffer. The one mile walk from the carpark to the start line was enough to nearly finish us off. Runners were huddled together in groups trying to stay warm as … [Read more...]
