Deca Mug for Catch It, X50 Run award for Frau
Weather forecast said heavy rain but when I got to the Millstream it was lovely sunshine.
Circle up on the bridge. We have a new runner, by the name of Rocky, brought along by Twiczer. Latecomers Lady P and Count Roadkill.
Now it gets a bit squelchy. There were cows here when trail was laid but they've move to the other side of the meadows now (bullocks actually .... honestly everything I say is true).
At the other side we go through the park. Time for Scooby Doo and Skippy to have a go on the swings (is Skippy too old for that sort of thing).
Where the hell is Underlay? Somewhere off in the distance. Luckily she gets caught by some number checks and all of the false trails so she's back with us again.
Now along a bit of road to Purwell Mill for a held check.
After regrouping at the mill we head off into some wheat fields. There's Underlay off in the distance which made it easy for the small group of runners to follow but the knitting circle were starting to lag behind.
Back to civilisation where front hare forgot where the trail went and led the runners the wrong way. Luckily the trail was well marked earlier, so this error was soon corrected.
On-Inn back to the pub with the rain now starting to pour down as we circle up. Awards for Catch-It-If-You-Can and Frau, and various down-down for reasons I forgot.
