The next event is our EAOA League event at Brackmills near Northampton on Sunday 20th March . There are courses similar to Keyne-O courses so why not come along and try this area.
You can subscribe to our Events on Facebook so you'll be one of the first to know about any upcoming event.
Though cold at least we saw some sign of the sun and it was a nice day for a walk or run in the woods. Shenley can be a bit muddy in places but everyone seemed to cope. We heard nothing but praise for Richard's courses so thanks to him for planning some excellent courses at comparitively short notice.
A big thank to our team of helpers, Alec, Wendy, Tasha, Ros, Charles and Ian. Any one who signs up to help three times qualifies to purchase the smart new 2016 Keyne-O kit at a reduced rate. And, of course, helpers signed up before the event qualify for a free run. So why not sign up now?
It’s quite a small area, Shenley Wood, so even on Amble it required a bit of zig-zagging to get the usual course lengths. And away from the paths the woodland is generally not much fun to run through, so there are fewer options for the longer courses. If you thought it was a little heavy going in the woods around control 20 on Run, believe me that was about the best bit there was. So without much technicality I played with trying to give you a few route choice options to ponder, at least on the Run. I hope there was something there to exercise the grey matter just a little.
Still, a lovely morning with which to start off the new season. The woods were splendid in frost and sunshine at 7am. Hopefully we’ll have a few more bright events during the year.
We have acquired a small runners water bottle. If it's yours please email the organiser to arrange its return.
