Race report by Tessa Bainbridge

Hundall is a small hamlet south of the village of Apperknowle, and east of Unstone. The 5-mile trail race starts and finishes at the Hundall Cricket Club, and the money raised from the event goes to the good cause of supporting the club.

Despite the rural location, the race was easy to get to, had plenty of parking and had a clubhouse for facilities such as toilets. Registration was quick as there were only 58 runners; slightly less than the last two years when there were around 70.

The course takes you around and out of the cricket field, then up and down through the woods and fields surrounding the area over towards Unstone and back. It included stretches through lovely wheat fields and woods with lots of logs to leap over. There were lots of friendly marshalls and spray painted arrows to ensure we did not get lost, and then one long drag up hill at the end to make sure we really felt like we had exhausted our legs by the finish.

As well as the race there was the opportunity to enjoy a hot dog or some cake and to take part in the raffle, so an all round winner of an event!

The race was won by Mike Robinson in 33:30. First woman was Emma Clossick in 37:03 (a course record).
