    Three Shires Junior Races Off

    The Junior races at the Three Shires have been cancelled.

    The weather means that they are having to use a car park 1.5 miles away from the registration area, and they feel that is too far for the young juniors.

    But surely there nothing against you running round the route....you could maybe set off 15 minutes before everyone else and see the speed that the leaders pass you....or set off a little time after the start and see how many people you can pick off.
    Just remember to shout to the marshalls that you arent in the race.


    You could even carry me a drink or a pork pie or two.

    ...or carry my drink to blisco and a few pork pies.

    You could be out for hours sweeping tom...and if the weather is shite it wouldnt be much fun and you'd get very cold.

    Or......you could run it backwards.....miss out parts and skip to others....the possibities are endless.

    Are you going to give it a try and ask Selywn if you can run tom?
    Mention any similar runs your done to prove you've got the "appropriate navigation and mountaincraft skills" and its worth a shot.
