CD Great multi terrain race. Well organised with some supportive marshals. Scunthorpe & District AC 48:13 52:57 57:18 52.88
Lisrun Off road and unless it dries up I guess it will be muddy. *Update* They said it was a rough trail race and they were right. We started off on a field which had cows in it so there was lots of hidden holes and other things that you get in a field full of cows. No discernible path on this section, then on to a slightly uphill track full of potholes. Then south on a slightly smoother tracker which rose a bit more. After a while we had a short section on road before another relatively smooth track. This was followed by a narrow loose gravel path, another field, then a narrow, loose stone and rocky path, more fields with no path which was boggy in one place, then back onto the potholed track which was mainly downhill to the finish. It was good fun, but I found it impossible to go fast except in the last 2K. As I had been taking it easy and watching every step (you had to if you wanted to avoid a twisted ankle), I felt very fresh at the end so I just let go in the last 2K. The race started and finished from the Spofforth Gala so it was possible to get food and drink afterwards. A warm day, but the sun went in soon after we started. Medal, box of ten Yorkshire tea bags and voucher to all finishers. 100 Marathon Club, Elvet Striders, North East Marathon Club 45:35 46:37 50:00 50:06 63.15

Wiggle Great little event with good atmosphere. Uneven gound with some fun stone sections, which probably didn't suit my slightly injured foot (that would be my problem however). I enjoyed the the bag of goodies at the end. Unaffiliated 53:54 53:54 54:59 55.17
