Round three completed, and the course is gradually being marked by the increased footfall, especially as you start out on the top common. Numbers were down a bit perhaps this time round, and the weather certainly varied according to when you ran – sometimes warm, sometimes windy, and for Sue P particularly, quite wet! But it’s good to see people still getting PBs over this quite demanding course.
Maybe soon we’ll be able to run it more as a race, with staggered starts for up to 4 runners at a time? Either way, although we’ve completed three rounds (as with the Croft Woods handicap series), there will be further fortnightly rounds for those who wish to continue running the course. Round 4 runs till August 9th.
