I was there. We watched the U15/U17 boys do the river crossing and it was carnage. About a third of the field ended up face down in the water.
I opted for the left line/slower pace approach. Stayed upright both times, but the water was at my waist when I went into a riverbed pothole. Twice up an old ski slope was also pretty taxing. Think I was 8th V45, and 146th overall. Bit knackered from track and hills midweek.…
…but that didn’t stop me doing the double. Sunday League at Trent Park this morning. 50th finisher. Don’t know age group placings yet, but certain I scored for the club A team. Lovely morning.
Volunteered at parkrun. Still over 200 runners despite biblical conditions.
@rhb - as I didn’t want to trash my varifocals, I augmented an old pair of single vision specs with some silicone ‘hooks’ that slip on the ends of the arms. Cheap on eBay. Perfectly secure during river crossings and whatnot.
