Tatton Yule Yomp

Nick, I hope you don’t mind me taking over your blog this week?!
I think this must be a record – eight Weaver Valley cyclists (plus one son) representing WVCC in a 10k. In the picture are Julian and Elaine, Kev and me and our elder son David – unfortunately we couldn’t find Nick and Ann, nor Jane and Rob when we took the photo.
The run was round Tatton Park -despite being mostly flat, the drizzle meant that conditions were very muddy and slippy underfoot, until the last 1k which was on tarmac. It’s a lovely scenic course – at one stage we were watched rather warily by a huge herd of puzzled deer.
Our team did really well, with Kev this year (46.04) pipping an injured Nick (46.08) to the post, with them both coming in the top 60 in a field of 1000 (and 4th and 5th in the over 50 men). Julian did an excellent 50.41, Rob 53.11 and we girls all did well too.
Some interesting comparisons with cycling events: far more women as a percentage of the total – and a closed road for the last kilometre. The run was organised by Cheshire Hash House Harriers, of which Kevan and I are members of – now the commercial break – if anyone is interested in joining us on our runs on Tuesday nights, look up
http://www.cheshirehash.co.uk/cheshire/hashmain.htm – we run from a different Cheshire pub every Tuesday night at 7.45 and all standards from v. slow to v. fast are welcome, it’s a 10k off road trail run (which takes well over an hour) involving looking for checks, and that means we can keep everyone together. In the winter we use torches, in the summer we get out to some spectacular places which you’ll all know from your bikes, e.g. Rainow, Macc Forest etc. If you’re interesting in coming along, let us know!

Helping set course today for @WeaverValleyCC for @nwcca race tomorrow. I hope the wind dies down! 🌪 pic.twitter.com/c06JEpWqY1
