Lone Crow at St.Arvans MT10.
Well I was the only “crow” at the 2012 St.Arvans MT10 today.
A very enjoyable multi terrain 10 miler run in the pleasant countryside between Chepstow & Tintern.
The route was mostly on country lanes and forest tracks, a mixture of tarmac and compact stone paths.
Ground was firm and dry, so road shoes definitely the right choice.
Course was undulating with mostly gentle inclines that were not too long.
As we have come to expect from an event organised by Chepstow Harriers, the course was well marked and well marshalled.
Weather was good, dry and not too warm and not windy.
Managed to finish in 1:21:29; 66th position out of a total field of 129 runners, so relatively happy with that.
Many familiar faces from the local running clubs were there, both runners and supporters.
Splendid choice of homemade cake, handmade by the fair maidens of Chepstow, was provided free for all runners.
Probably look forward to doing this one again next year.
