When I saw that entries were open for a 5k race at Hullavington I thought it an ideal opportunity to get back out racing for the first time since lockdown. With the entry done pre-race information was emailed consisting of COVID guidelines and a list of start times with waves of runners starting at minute intervals. The website also had photos, profile and a map of the route and details of race HQ.
On the evening of the 9th of September lots of current club runners and quite a few new faces came together for an evening of ‘running’ and other types of general silliness.
Four of the clubs Run Leaders each came up with an activity. The evening commenced with a warm-up led by Karen. It resembled something from Monty Pythons Ministry of Silly Walks with everyone bouncing, bobbing, and skipping their way up and down Shrewton Rec field, all looking thoroughly ridiculous but getting nice and warm for the next session.
