Race Date: 26th March
The clocks have sprung forward so it can only mean one thing – the Trunce is back in action.
459 runners (including the juniors) took part in the first Trunce of 2018 on a pleasant spring evening. The start is back down at the bottom of the field so PBs will be hard to come by for those who have run the shorter version. Some particularly treacherous mud on the first descent led to many a wobble.
Scott Hinchliffe of PFRAC was first man home in 24:46 whilst Annabel Mason of Wakefield Harriers was fastest lady in 29:34.
Well done to all 29 striders who took part. Looks like it was a close battle to be first strider. Congratulations to David, Stuart, Victoria, Rachel and Emma on their PBs with Victoria also winning her age category,
Testament to the lure of the trunce was the first sighting for some time of the Goldstar in his vintage racing vest. He only required the assistance of paracetamol to get him round and will apparently be wheeled out for every trunce in perpetuity.
