Its a Troop of Frogs
Lobster Lollop 10K
From Claire: Lobster Lollop 10K completed. Great out and back course along the Camel Trail, really friendly race with a 10 mile option. Raising funds for the Lobster Hatchery in Padstow. The Cornish Weather was kind. Now sat on the harbour enjoying a pasty - well when in Cornwall!
From Gareth: I would like to thank everyone who came to the quiz last night. Absolutely blown away with everyone’s generosity, donating prizes for the raffle and also buying plenty of raffle tickets helped raise a grand total of £815. I hope everyone had a good night? In the madness at the end I forget to thank Rachael Jones because without her help this night would not of happened. Also, thanks again to Alison Griffiths for being the quiz master. And Fez for organising us having the room at the Golf Club.
And finally well done to ‘Meat and two veg’ for winning the quiz…… I owe somebody some vegan chocolate.
Kendal Mountain Festival
From Terry: Wow. So the Kendal Mountain Festival run, 1000 runners, up Beast Banks and then, 11km with climbs, mud, rocks, mist, above the clouds and through the clouds, and I thought the stickler climbs were tough. 2 queues near start as course narrowed and a stile stepped with bales, later obstacles we we strung out. It was challenging, I swore, I laughed, I hated it, I loved it. I dodged the sharp stones, I splashed the mud, whats not to love? The drop off Scout Scar was hidden by mist, scary. I did 1hr 15mins including the queues. I am so happy with that. If you can be here next year, the Festival is amazing, the run is so well organised and just fun.
Dark Moor Valley 10k
From Nat: A few of us done the Dark Moor Valley 10k
From Jo: 2nd December is out next Yeovil Town RRC take over at Frogmary Green Farm parkrun. Please head to their page & get your name on the list for marshalling & other jobs. Please put your name down here if you want to pace & what pace you want to do. THANK YOU all in advance.
From Jo: Lovely morning with Robert Adams & Alison Griffiths at Burnham & Highbridge Parkrun. While the weather was kind to us, the previous rain meant we had choices today - run through the floods or go up & over through the muddy grass. I will leave you to decide who did what . This is a great scenic flat course & will definatly do more often. Finished off with a lovely breakfast a a local cafe.
PUB RUN – HARDINGTON MOOR – (16th November 2023)
From Mark: I led Louise, Sue, and JC, running a clockwise loop. Conditions were cool and dry although there seemed to be a mist at times. The sky was clear with stars visible and one bright planet. There was a lot of mud on the roads.
Leaving the pub we ran up through Lyatts, which is basically a farm and a few houses. At the top of the hill we turned right and ran westwards passing the southern edge of Hardington Mandeville. In the distance to the left were possibly the lights of Crewkerne. At Hill Cross we turned right and continued along Partway Lane. This turned into a long climb to the western edge of Coker Hill. Turning right we continued climbing, and then ran along Ridge Lane. The lights of Yeovil were visible to the left. To the right were the lights of Hardington. At the end of the lane we turned right and descended the hill back down to the village and pub.
The fast group was bigger than ours tonight, and Phil ran alone.
Thanks Phil for organising, the pub food was good.
