|26 Nov 2017||Jeremy||Sue|
There was an excellent turn out out on a very cold day, about 24 of us gathered for Jeremy’s trail. The sun was shining and everyone was wrapped up warmly (except for Mike who braved the elements and ran wearing shorts as per usual – it must be from his navy training)
Keith, David and I ran the long route, Mike, John and Ainslie ran the short. We were accompanied on the long by our hare and Noodle (his dog) – I just wish that I had Noodle’s stamina….
It didn’t take long for Keith and I to follow the wrong trail and get called back by our hare – we had been too busy talking to follow the flour. Those of you that know me will understand that I’ve no idea where we went but I asked Jeremy and he obligingly told me: West Leaze, up to the old railway line,
East South Leaze, towards Elcombe, then Wroughton and back to the Check Inn. As Keith mentioned in the pub afterwards, parts of the route brought back to him happy memories of The Leithbridge 10K that he ran last June. The long route was lovely, 6 miles, pretty muddy in places, a well laid and enjoyable trail.
The walkers were back at the pub before us but all agreed that once again Jeremy’s trails were a big success.
Back at the pub Keith thanked our hare and we all dived into multiple bowls of chips.
