Marathons are nearly over but the rain isn’t
With Brighton, Manchester and London in the rear vision mirror and only Milton Keynes to come in major English spring marathons our attention turns to making the most of the glorious English spring conditions. Despite the emergence of asparagus, wild garlic and bluebells, the persistent rain has left our off-road trails in a very muddy state. Dunorlan failed this morning’s pitch inspection and with heavy rain falling as I write, I have decided we will stick to the roads for another week, which will hopefully be our last (I probably said that last week).
So, continuing our pavements-are-us season another week we have Alex Jeffreys who has run 2 marathons this Spring faster than many people run one, so with Alex as this week’s Routemaster , fasten your seat belts and here we go ……
We have a 7.5 mile long route and a short route of 5.6 miles – something for everyone (despite the uphill start !)
No head torch will be needed this week but please make sure you are wearing something hi vis.
Current forecast for Wednesday is for a chance of a shower and 8C.
Tea Total Trevor is hosting us in the bar afterwards (for the last time for a while as the cricket club crew take over for the summer) selling the finest beer (Harveys), AF lager and ale, wine and soft drinks in the immediate vicinity, at special prices, with crack sidekick and bon viveur, Rocky, so why not relax and have a drink with friends before you head home.
7:30 prompt start from the Nevill – change rooms, showers and bar all open – it’s time to commit !
