Saturday 24th November – Weeton Handicap

A small but elite bunch gathered under the railway bridge for the penultimate race of this years Eric Smith trophy.  Maddie ran strongly up the final incline to take her first handicap win with a time nearly 4 and a half minutes quicker than 2 year ag0.  Liam, (plus William in the buggy), over took Tom just before the finish, but as I’d messed up Tom’s start time by at least 5 seconds, Tom took the 14 points for 2nd. …

18th November 2018 – Wadsworth Half Trog

BM fell race – 9.3 miles/15km Laura Mcabe found this race and persuaded me to join her after reassuring me it was mostly on footpaths so I wouldn’t get lost. This wasn’t entirely true!
