Thankfully it was a mild and pleasant morning and we soon found ourselves moving towards the start line.
The event had 250 participants last year and it must have won a good reputation as this year it was up to 450 plus in all shapes and sizes! Definitely a family event and it was great to see so many young kids out to run with their parents. Our youngest walked it with She Who Must Be Obeyed while I ran it with our nine year old.

I was very impressed as we kept a nice even pace any only stopped to walk twice for a very short period each time. Finished in a very respectable 35 minutes and then enjoyed watching the rest of the family cruise to the finish!

A great time and I hope that it will become an annual family tradition. It provided a great excuse to over-indulge in a fabulous turkey dinner prepared by the wonderful SWMBO later in the afternoon!
Thanks to race director Karen Warlitner who did a spectacular job and, as aways, had a ready smile for everyone!
