I think we all long for the day when we can congregate at the start line, moan that our handicap isn’t fair, grumble that the wind is in the wrong direction, discuss which way round is faster (anti-clockwise, all day long), but most importantly encourage other runners and have a good time TOGETHER
Nonetheless, as runners we have some fortune in lockdown in that the thing we do is still able to happen, albeit individually and on our own courses.
One of the most fun parts of the write up when we are remote is looking at where everyone ran and how much elevation there was. The Explorer House course has about 40m elevation across the 5k, what goes up, must come down of course, but you never get back all that you lose and depending on the profile of the course and your preferences for short/steep or long/steady each course will be preferred by different runners.
Anywhere, here are some of the courses run this month
Anyway, onto the results, hopefully I’ve captured everyone, it is a bit trickier when there are runs going all week, so if I’ve missed you, please shout. Welcome to Rob and Lee on their first OS Handicaps and congratulations to Jo & Owain for handicap PB’s 🙂
I’ve just noticed this is our 97th event. Fingers crossed the 100th event (April) the COVID situation will have improved and we are able to have people running from Explorer House.
