Last week’s event on the 15th was another cracking evening, with a beatiful sunlit run along the beach, on a surprisingly warm evening. Lots of line choices, depending if you favoured (or endured, depending on your point of view) dry sand, wet sand, pebbles, rocks or seaweed. The return leg was much more straightforward down the Wirral Way on a pan-flat path. Two loops, probably somewhere around 5 miles in total.

Final call for Race 4! The last in the series is this Tuesday (22nd), Cherry Orchard, Arrowe Park, Birkenhead. Note the early-ish 6:30pm start, to maximise the daylight. Map here
Anyone that’s been before will testify to how good these events are. Don’t be concerned you’ll be last. You won’t. A real range of abilities turn out, and everyone seems to finish with a smile on their face. Don’t be concerned by a lack of offroad skills, they’re really not technical.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could field a full team for the last of the series? 3 women and 5 men — we were pretty close last week, one more bloke needed.
