It’s that time of year when race directors spend time with their families and not much happens.
However there was still the Hullavington 10 mile where we had 9 runners, David Mackie was in his Christmas gear but it didn’t make him any slower and Laura Midwinter was nearly in tears when the rain started 5 minutes before the race, but she got on with it and finished 2nd lady, I think she’s asked for a new mantelpiece for Christmas after an excellent 2019.
Early in the morning an intrepid group of 7 runners and Teddy the super dog took on the short, sharp rise up Little Solsbury Hill to see the winter solstice sunrise, a different view to the summer event but still looks spectacular and a much more civilised start time.
Special well done to Richard Biggs and David Mackie who did that and then went to race Hullavington.
We wish all of our readers a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
