The Young at Heart Trail

A great turnout today in the spring sunshine at the Cattawade Crown, Brantham with 50 participants on the short course and 25 tackling the 9 mile route in the heat. A few found the second woodland section challenging – but that at least gave them longer to admire the stunning bluebells! Congratulations to Roy and Allen who were first home in the 5.5 and 9 miles respectively and to Jenny and Lynn who were the first lady finishers in each race.

presentation trail

an unusual day ... more women than men, more long route entries than short, at least we could depend on the weather.

several went astray in the last mile (times in italics), some made up the distance by running laps in the car park, excellent.

many thanks for your support (again) and also for the friendly staff at the venue, we will be back!

nightmare at owls hill 2

an excellent turnout given the poor weather during the day, good runs from everyone considering the underfoot conditions

unfortunately I have managed to lose the results, if you took your own time and would like it recorded please email me at events@midessexcasuals.org.uk (along with any abuse you feel fitting), when I have recovered from my embarrassment I will put together another trail and give you all free entry, many apologies, Dave. following are all the names I could remember and times as supplied by the runners, if your name is missing (and I think afew are) let me know as above
