On a pleasantly cool(er) evening, some ten members ran round the Bircher handicap course, suitably socially distanced, and despite fairly rudimentary handicapping, all finished within a few minutes of each other, but there was no mad collective rush for the line. Our guest runner, Mike, set off with others in sight, but not knowing the course, became detached and ran somehat further than intended.
It’s impressive to see how many are still able to achieve a PB, even after completing the course more than the four times the results suggest.
It is hoped over the next few weeks that we can resolve the parking issue and be able to resume training at Bircher Common before training has to move for the winter. If all goes to plan, we will be able to cater for larger numbers competing round the common.
