There is more mud than the Grizzly! And to give you an idea the 7.45 miles took 1hr 45mins (no wonder, with all that food and alcohol slowing you down, jokes ed.!!!!!)
But it was a lovely run in the crisp, winter sunshine and no rain! Easy to follow instructions (Lisa is an expert, it turns out!), but there is usually someone in front you can follow (if they go the right way, which Parrett Trail experience has told us, does not always happen!)
The three ladies ran together (as a team) and since it wasn't a conventional race and there were no prizes, there was a relaxed and highly social atmosphere to the event.
If all of this noshing and swilling interspersed with sections of running through stunning countryside appeals, then they have a sister run, the Blackdown Beauty, on 13th July which Alison, Dawn and Lisa are thinking about. It fills up early but it would be great to get some of the other Harriers there... and rumour has it that instead of a pasty there is a cream tea on offer at this one! Yum!
