Trail Race 26/03/2000

Dave sent me the details for this race that described it as a 12 mile cross-country run with a narrative description. We set off from the school car park In Tiptree shortly after nine and although we had both decided not to push it we were gratified to be overtaking people from the start and this continued with only a couple of exceptions. We navigated the muddy bits and didn’t get lost once, even so we became a bit concerned when we had been running for two hours and there was still more route on the page. We finally finished in 2 hours 24 mins, to be told that the twelve miles were “country miles”. Consulting an ordinance survey map showed that the course was well over 15miles. However it was hugely enjoyable and I look forward to doing more trail races in the future.
