Most people who randomly run 18 miles a day for the hell of it are hippies who just want to feel the wind in their hair, listen to the birds and fondle the badgers. These people wouldn't lower themselves to participating in anything as demeaning as a race, not when there's Brazilian tribal music to be danced to.
Ric, since the team that won was Aldershot, who usually host and had their alternative venue overruled by SEAA, I doubt they were massively keen. And I know Andy Vernon, who ran the fastest leg, was not enamoured, as my clubmates heard him moaning about it.
Well, it's the MoD really, turfing the already booked race off the venue for a bloody performance car meeting. You'd think the government would be a less unscrupulous landlord. But hopefully it can be smoothed over for next year, Aldershot is a great venue.
Ironic that performance cars were roaring round our perfect running venue yesterday, whilst we had to run around a racetrack.
Really good relaying from Dean, Matt and Simon. Matt, encouraging to see you haven't forgotten how to race fast. Dean, excellent performance, when was the last time you raced that far? And great consistency from Simon as always.
Pete, always nice to see another parkrn/low key 10k double.
It doesn't feel right not to have a 3-post SG parkrun report.
