I have the relatively short Greenmantle Dash to thank for the shouts that everyone hears as I have descended the stairs the last couple of days! Had a great time down in Broughton with a fair few Harriers representing the club on what was a freezing cold but slightly less windy day than the previous one.
The course was its usual mix of walls, streams and fences to jump, bog to wade through then a wee bit of a hill to get up and down before the ‘sprint’ back to the field at the village hall.
A few of us had a wade in the beautifully clear but bloomin’ freezing stream to clean our legs/shoes before enjoying the delicious chilli pasta and beer on tap!!
A great race to start the year off, well organised by Dick Wall in his team that included Dave timing and Bill helping at registration. I think the Penicuik 10k should take a leaf out of the more relaxed approach to race organisation and write numbers on hands and have beer on tap post race – committee, we need a meeting…..!
Harriers in attendance were Rob & Andrea, Chris D, Mike B, Duncan, Janice and myself. Bill’s grandchildren and son and (I think) daughter-in-law were running too. Can’t find any photos or results I’m afraid.
