Wooler Festive 5k Fun Run and Walk
18th December 2011

When Jack and I went out in the snow to mark the route yesterday, it was bleak, grey with a freezing wind and the threat of more snow. The access road to the golf club was pretty treacherous with compacted snow frozen solid. We had a family discussion and decided to go ahead with the fun run, mainly because we couldn’t face the prospect of eating mince pies and drinking pints of mulled wine for the next two weeks. Fortunately we had brilliant sunshine and blue skies today, 38 walkers and runners braved the ascent to the golf club, and enjoyed the glorious views on the route. There were some excellent performances considering the conditions underfoot. Ages ranged from 5 to 77 years, including two jolly Santas. All enjoyed their mulled punch and mince pies whilst Jack gave out the prizes. Really good fun, much better than Christmas shopping!!
