What a cracking race ! Thanks to all the marshall and organisers who still got the race on despite the challenging conditions. Well done Orion.
A club mate suggested I would need either a gel or a small bottle of water at about 4.5 miles otherwise I might be flagging by the time I got to 9 even given the weather forecast.
I loved the Orion Cross Country race in the Essex League which were seriously muddy this year. Based on the heavy rain forecast on Friday I would say that the going will be very soft to liquid mud !
Looking forward to this - it will be my first Orion 15 and having read reviews etc it seems to have gained an almost legendary status over the years !
I have my number already - it's either 809 or 608 - don't know whether you can clarify ?
And a big thank you to Benfleet RC and all of your marshalls - an outstanding effort all round to get this on and run so successfully.
