ADRC provided four entrants to this trail race. Paul ‘Tumnus’ Collingwood, Daniel ‘Danjermouse’ O’Grady, Paul ‘The Beef’ Smith and Steve ‘Burgers’ Leyland, ‘Benidorm’ Baz provided the much needed moral support.
It was a challenging course due to the temperature and soggy underfoot conditions. ‘Burgers’ providing an alternative to the Disney on Ice franchise, a couple of Bambi moments misjudging his footing in a couple of puddles. The course can be loosely likened to a figure 8 shape through the lovely woodland setting, many warning given before and after the race that it was ‘private land’ but nobody would be shot at today, reassuring, although may improve some times.
Collo went off from the start and from 2.5 started to work his way through the field (and trees) culminating in him having clear ground by the time he emerged back onto the track/road on his way to the finish.
