On a cold Saturday afternoon in middle winter there came together a group of hardy souls bent on testing themselves to the very limit on a rugged cross country circuit behind the Boat Inn at sprotborough.
We had a few kids from the poulter clan. Seth aged 9, Mary aged 12, and Sam aged 18, father poulter was also there. Steve (blue hat) and gray hat Greg were raring to go with Andy P offering abuse to all competitors in his own inimitable style.
The course comprises of three 1.5 km circuits, and the original idea was a staggered start with competitors going off at 30 sec intervals, with the slowest first...... Well..... That didnt go quite to plan ......but ......ignoring a bit of abuse from Andy, poking his nose in, we got away in a random order.
Early pace was shown by steve blue hat, who took back the 30 secs advantage and pulled up onto sean's shoulder by the end of the first lap , but sadly faded on the subsequent laps. That was the story for the majority of the athletes and kids, the person to succeed would be the one who could maintain the pace consistently.
Sean took the day, with steve and Greg in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Next time trial is the Saturday 25th Feb. Bring the kids, wives, etc the course is quite small, and family friendly. You have the option to do 1,2,or all 3 laps depending on ability. Same time, same place, see you there.
