Thrunton Thriller 17 – Oh what a day!

17359465_668857096635571_2032977820626801830_oI took this one, rainbow included while Lee ran off with some random group of ladies

I was going to write a little review of this exciting trail run, Lee Drummond and I did at the weekend, with a few pictures thrown in…after all, it was a brilliant although extremely tough half marathon. Anyway, it seems High Fell Events the organisers have done the job for me and included a couple of photos of us poster boys having a fabulous time.

Full review of the race here on the High Fell Events Website Thanks Barry!

Suffice to say, it was a brilliant morning, we would highly recommend it (or any of their events, as they are well marshaled, great atmosphere and brilliant fun!

I’ve no idea what happened to distances or results as my garmin clocked 12.9m and Lee clocked 13.65m, yet we ran the whole race together putting the world to rights and generally laughing the whole way round, but frankly we didn’t care, it was tough, we survived and we had fun!.. and I had a massage waiting for me in the tent as soon as I finished and I didn’t need asking twice!
