Rain was forecast so the gazebo was deployed about half an hour before the start, when the above picture of keen early arrivals and a rather smart bike was taken.
It didn’t rain. We even enjoyed the post run coffees outside in the courtyard of the tea room.
Since my last visit, some posters about the ongoing repair work to Wythenshawe Hall have been attached to the fence. If you click on the images you may get a slightly more readable version.
The run was fairly routine. In the absence of ‘HM’ Jackie Cordingley, the ‘Rt Hon’ Mark Hunter took the ‘age-related’ trophy with over 81%. He had finished and left before I got to the tape. Soon afterwards I noted Ron sprinting past an astonished (eclipsed, even) Margaret at a pace that demonstrated that he should really be running much faster, rather than ambling round the course and showing off at the finish.
A bit later, Sue replicated Ron’s performance. If she hadn’t spent so much time chatting with Cary, she may have got a PB…
As always, a great way to start the weekend. Full results are here.
