The new cracker course

20 Mar

A brilliant new cracker course, thanks to John L and Steve F for selecting this interesting route.

The course maybe slightly altered for Christmas, to make it marginally longer, only by adding the trig point on Walton hills.

We all ran well today sorry for Nicki and Alex who got slightly lost.

It was Alex’s race to be had albeit for a slight error on his part. 😀

All to my benefit! Sorry Alex.

Well done Fran first Cobra female, and John L first Cobra male (25 years and 25 finishes) well done John.

Rebecca X cobra came in first but only as a guest well done to her.

Sally F and Claire W fastest ladies.

And I won fastest lap I don’t know how, thanks  Steve for the push.

A great day and I’m looking forward to the next one.

A special thanks to Paul Doug and Lee for time keeping and marshalling.

Boxing Day run 2015

27 Dec


Twenty Five intrepid Cobra and friends turned up at Walton Hill Car Park for the annual Boxing Day Run. Running over Walton Hill, stopping at Mark’s Bench, the Trig Point and the cottages the run traversed the edge of Walton Hill down to the Welsh Stone before descending a very wet and muddy gutter, for some a new experience! Across the field and down to St Leonards in Clent before climbing back up to the top of Walton Hill and down to the car park it was a tough 4 miles in a chilly breeze which ended with a nice warming mulled wine provided by Steve and Fran. A good run in good company!!


Shortest Run 2015

17 Dec

Thanks to all the Cobras who took part in the annual shortest run event this evening. Well done Alex for finishing first on his debut but I think everyone should be pleased with their times on what could be described as an undulating course, except me as I took a wrong turn, you’d think I should know the route by now.

Marks race.

28 Sep

Thanks to Dan and Paul, Marks race was a great success.

Its great to see Marks family each year well done all.

A big thanks to all the marshals and drinks station the late entry area plus the finish area.

Marks memory lives on, 25 Cobras raced to remember this great guy.

For those of you who didn’t know him, if you met him you would have instantly liked him. He had that impact. A lovely guy.

Thanks Alan for the rapid results, well done too for the fast finishers Carson Mike and Alex  good running.

This year was good next year will be better!
