A lovely sunny day for a run around the countryside (and also a couple of dips in a river). In fact, its so nice, lets do two laps of it!
Well done to the RntS that took part in the Reepham Cross Country this weekend. Here’s a great report from Lynne:
The sun shone, the mud was very muddy and the water was wet, but what an amazing morning for everyone running the Reepham Cross Country, organised again by Reepham Runners.
Starting and finishing at Whitwell & Reepham Station and running out on Marriott’s Way railway track. Followed by some challenging but hilarious stream crossings, then running through, hilly woodlands, water meadows and open fields.
Lynne, Kerrie and Andy were reassured by the presence of Cam, Kirsty and Hayley who’d raced it before and came back for more, hopefully this was a positive sign of a great race ahead. They weren’t wrong, what an amazing, friendly, supportive race. All the runners shared their morning with a cacophony of encouraging marshals, by every stream and ditch and all around the course. The morning was finished off with scrumptious cake and a cuppa.
Will they all be back next year, certainly will and hopefully with more RntsSwho’d like to put their white shirts to the Persil test.
And following on from that in other news, we have a gold medalist in the club! Well done Chris P who is officially the 60Mtrs 65+ County Champion!
