Bawtry Forest Trail Race

Bawtry Forest Trail Race - Joh Crosby

The Maltby club are a very friendly group and I’m pleased to note they once again had a good turnout of local clubs and people ,like myself and Ann long and a very good turn out from Beverley AC,particularly for the junior run.

The trail goes through the forest and is between 6.5 and 7 miles long. It had a slightly altered and shorter course this year due to flooding on the track. The downside to the shorter distance was that it finished on a steep uphill run .

But the goody bag was interesting with bottles of water and lucozade along with chocolate bars and pikelets (or are they crumpets ?). There was also a very nice forest green t shirt.

To top things off Ann long got a prize of a 10 pound voucher for finishing first lady in her age group and I got a reasonable time of just over an hour
and got to chat to my mate Eddie who is a Maltby club member. Did I mention the free sandwiches and the heart Foundation cake stall? Well they were here too so no one went hungry.

Maltby organise on a number of runs through the year and they are all worth travelling down for.
