Another season and the traditional now jump into the Croyland Park mud bath.
A fine turn-out of 22 included newcomers to the fun of X-country, Lynsey, Sarah and Joe.
This zig-zagging course is always a killer but everyone put in their best efforts and have qualified as club heroes.
John Eales raced back from Snowdon as he needed a cool down run after his marathon and a mud bath is just the job, he is therefore a super-hero.
The smiles at the finish were even bigger than those at the start once the stinking mud was wiped away.
Good cake eating skills were displayed by all. I will check on boot cleaning at the next event.
Next race is at Wootton on Nov 9th. Details are on our website.
