Muddy Woody

Race Reports

Well this one certainly lived up to it’s name this year!

It was a very wet morning to run six miles around Haugh Woods and very muddy for the majority of the race. I have run this race a few times and each time the route has been different and I think this years was the muddiest it has been – short sections along the fire tracks did allow for some easier running but most of the route takes you along small trails which were on occassion ankle deep in mud.

The challenge was to stay upright and to try to keep running on all the ups and downs whilst slipping and sliding in the mud – good off road trainers were a must and mine were taped on due to fear of losing them in the mud – although I did not hear that anyone did.

21 Croft Runners took part and it was great to have Hayley Millichap back with us after a short break away from the club.

The rain was coming down in earnest by the end of the race and there was not much post race chatting as everyone just wanted to get warm and dry.

Unfortunately not a great day for Croft prizes, but a good time was had by all nonetheless and I for sure will be back again next year.
