Round 11 | Frylands | 15th December 2013
- Weather: mizzle
- Course: woody, rooty, muddy. One tree barrier. A deep gully. Reasonably long, steep ascent and descent.
- Highlight: a pressure washer
This round was held in the woods of Frylands Scout Centre in Croydon. The course featured leaves, deep mud and roots. I don’t like roots. They’re very slidey if you hit them at the wrong angle.
Perhaps by the last race of this series I will manage to get there on time for a full sighting lap…I got off to an amazing start but once I discovered the roots and a deep gully I quickly dropped back through the field as I took the obstacles more cautiously.
At periods it was rainy and quite dark.
From looking at the start list I knew there were only a few girls in this race so once I was far down the field after my less-than-good start and no longer in a competitive position I just focused the race on not letting any women past me, as I knew only Sophia was ahead of me.
