Trunce #1 2022

Monday 28th March 2022

Report by Jane Huws

What a fantastic March evening !  Standing round on the start line at Oxspring, in teeshirts at 6.45pm, it felt like the start of Summer.    This was the first one of the 9 scheduled Trunce races of 2022.  There was a good crowd of over 280 runners with a good representation from Striders.  The route was different to the last time I’d done it in 2019, but apparently they did have a Covid Trunce last year using a broadly similar route.    The first and last 400 m were fast along the Transpennine Trail.  In between that was steady hills, steep hills, 3 river crossings and my favourite – the downhill wood section.   Great variety all in 3.8 miles.   If you haven’t done it, it’s a good fun evening out with a wide range of runners.  And there  always some great photos.

16 Striders ran.  The race winner was Chris Andrade (MSen Unattached) in 27:31, and Zanthe Wray (FSen Unattached) in 30:29.  Next Trunce is April 11th.
