With 20 runners not completing the course and others taking a wrong turn maybe it was the Beast that actually won this race.
Even so, with a slightly modified course including a few more forest twists and an extra scramble up the Beast it was an interesting night for Helsby runners.
With said green vested crew getting closer to each other with every race and some very promising early running from Jim O’Hara everyone was working hard on what was a sunny night but not overly warm due to the deep forest cover for much of the race. Definitely an interesting course and one I’d recommend to keep in the calendar, short,sharp and varied. Well done to all involved and for Joe working hard vocally in the woods. And if Jim hadn’t took a wrong turn would Chris have caught him….? The tension builds…
