Bury to Clare

Bury to Clare, 5th May.

We had talked about doing this run last year when we went through Clare on the Two Castles marathon. Kerrie and Lucy had said that it was a lovely run, and now having taken part in it – I totally agree.

An early start for us. Kerrie kindly drove this time and we had to park at Clare to catch the bus to Bury. Absolutely love the bus journey every time as it builds the atmosphere.

Once at Bury well ahead of the 9am start we found a nice sunny spot to keep us warm, happens it was in the play area – not just for little ones 😄

We attended the briefing, there was so many people! This race is inclusive for walkers with a generous 8 hour cut off time for the 18 miles. We then walked to the start line which was a bit of a bottleneck as there was no self seeding of walkers and runners.

Once we all found ourselves into a rhythm, we were treated to fantastic views, beautiful sunshine and in the shadier areas, some lovely squelchy mud!

We ran/walked the route which gave us lots of time to eat our snacks and just really enjoy the day. Added bonus of not getting lost thanks to Lucy’s great navigational skills.

Kirsty, Kerrie and Lucy.
