Chiltern Chase 10k Report, by Kate Welsby
As Kate says, I thought it time we had a run report written in doggerel. Below is my best effort.
“The course is safe, albeit hilly”
Said the website. Had I been silly
To sign up for this race? How would hills affect pace?
As 22 Eynshamites gathered
And we’re off – uphill to start
The Chiltern Way featured in part
Through farmland and beech wood,
More hills, the odd puddle
It enchanted my (hard working) heart
My time? Respectably mid-table
(I ran as fast as was able)
Twas a fun, friendly day
And a Club Championship 10K
Verdict? “Do again” is the label.
