Tom's Birthday Bash - 06/09/2011
Tonight was a little different for a Tuesday night, with some car pre-placement to ensure we could do a point to point run out to the pub at Bridges to celebrate Tom's 30th Birthday.
We set out across the fields to All Stretton and the up the Batch and Jonathan's Hollow to climb past Gill's Finger Post up to Robin Hood's Butts. We crossed the road and went north past Betchcott Hill and descended Golden Valley in fading light, to follow Darnford Brook for the last two and a half miles past Ratlinghope to Bridges.
A few beers and a good banter later we were back off home. Next week is a recce of the Bury Ditches race.
8.6 miles (very long for a Tuesday run) and 1,180' of ascent in 1:28:25 (10:15 mins / mile).
