2023 Trail Race Results

swan LorR

What a scorcher! a power cut (due to a dodgy plug) after the start made things exciting for the organisers, so there may be a few errors in the results, if you spot one let me know and I'll correct it (unless its just that you were 40 minutes quicker!!)

Both routes were identical in length but the left route looks as if the navigation was a bit easier (despite the ploughed field). If you are planning to run the swan RorL in july you can try the other route.

eggstravaganza day 1

A rather changeable day, underfoot and weatherwise. A good turnout gets the 21st edition of the eggstravaganza underway.

Just a minute and a half split the first 3 men in the five miler, Adam from Phil from Adam. The women had a close finish with lyn just 30 seconds ahead of sue with Lian a little more distant in 3rd.

The 10 miler saw excellent run from Antony and Jackie in under 8 minutes a mile, Nick and Allen were just 13 seconds apart while Tracy and Caroliena gave each other a little more space.

Any errors or omissions that you notice ... let me know at "events@midessexcasuals.org.uk" ... you all may have been warm and damp but my tiny hands were frozen!/p

VICTA trail

Virginia's first trail, all seemed to go well, rumours are there may be a second! MEC almost filled the podiums with Adam, Justin and Kevin for the men and Lynn and Jill for the ladies, well done to Sue for spoiling the clean sheet.

Muddy good fun, with several water features, seemed to be enjoyed by almost everyone ... well done to the horse wranglers, many thanks to our hosts at the western arms.

Correct answers were: spirit & opportunity, china, danish, apollo 11, vasco de gama (could have been my greatmanytimesgrandad) five, spain, 1911. Look out for the Left OR Right trails later this year

A new format of event for most of the participants, everyone seemed to have fun which may encourage me to put on another one! Some of you got a wrong answer for question 9 (first briton in space) the correct answer was Helen Sharman, but there is a hydrant within 20mtrs of one of the wrong answers (which I hadn't spotted) so I will allow that
