East Grinstead 10

This race was part of Mid Sussex Marathon weekend three races that made a total distance of 26.2 miles you could do all three or just one each race had a separate medal for each that joined together to make one large one ..
Tim, Neil and Jo were just doing the Saturday
Carla was doing Saturday and Monday and brave Becky did all three (kudos to her )
We arrived to find plenty of car parking and  greeted with a very chilling and windy morning for May.  We took shelter in the clubhouse and proceeded to complain a lot about the cold and why are we doing this etc. Eventually and only after a small wardrobe malfunction ( shorts on inside out ) we braved the elements and headed to the start cue more moaning. We needn’t of worried the race began and after a lap of the field we set off on a lovely route down tree lined trails to a lake going around part of it and down some lovely country’s lanes we headed along what appeared to be an old railway line and back the race had a little surprise for us a particularly savage hill at the end, but we all finished with a smile on our faces  Kudos to Neil 5th in cat next was Tim hot in his coattails hanging on for dear life, then Jo, Becky and Carla.
Lots of laughing, a lovely course what a great morning out.
