Shobdon Wood 6
I really enjoyed the race this year-previously I’ve always found it too tough to really ‘enjoy’ in the conventional sense! I think my run around the course on the previous Sunday helped, even though I spent 10 minutes moving some fallen branches on the way round. Eventually finishing halfway up the women’s field was a real surprise.
I thought the refreshments after the race worked really well. Having crisps and doughnuts as well as drinks meant people stayed to chat. Most people I spoke to had come back to run the race again, having enjoyed it in previous years, and others had heard of it via online race diaries which had listed it.
We did get a mention in last week’s Hereford Times which may have reminded people to come along. Hopefully we can get a post-race write-up in the paper soon.
