I arrived at the Vagrants Club, Shavington just before 9am, felt quite lonely at first (wot no Striders!) but was joined by John Lawton after about five minutes. There was a good atmosphere at the start with quite a few runners in fancy dress - mainly for the fun run.
|Captain Quick setting an early pace!|
A predominantly cross country race on an undulating route from Shavington via Wybunbury. Across fields, through the churchyard, on to the road and circling round towards Blakenhall, going off road again, across fields, back down the same road, through the churchyard, via Cockshades and back to the Vagrants. Slightly extended from last year (just over nine miles) a challenging course with many stiles and kissing gates to negotiate, but good fun and a race I enjoyed and would recommend to club members.

Not so much a hellraiser - but a devil of a race.
