So now we are 3! Well, 2 really as nuthin much happened last year, let's face it. In those 3 (or 2) years you have collectively notched up nearly 50,000km which is a breathtaking distance; well over the circumference of the Earth.
Thank you to everyone who turned up to celebrate our 3rd birthday. We had 119 walk, jog, or runners, including fancy dress, babies, buggies, dogs, cake, and a prodigal token.
Thank you to Eddy for the great pictures that capture the event so beautifully. The time lapse is genius, but - sorry Eddy - I have the Benny Hill chase tune in my head while watching it (just me, huh).
We had 31 first timers who must all have been wondering "whaaaat?" - it's not always like this guys (don't tell 'em, regulars!) - and a crazy 21 PBs which is impressive for our hilly course.
We love running this event for you guys and it's always rewarding, especially from my vantage point on the sharp left-hander at Rugby. It was lovely to see everyone speeding, breezing, or ambling by. Sorry if I may have mentioned it's all downhill from there, OK it wasn't.
As well as seeing our regular friends and the 31 newcomers, an unexpected birthday present was being reunited with a long lost token... the token must have been on a world trip as it was pre-covid. We brought it up to speed with the token bucket, pandemics, plus Joe Wickes and it seemed to settle back with its erstwhile friends very quickly. Please remember to drop your tokens into the bucket or the other tokens will worry about it, pining for its return.
See you all next week
