29th February 2020: Dirty Dozen


There was a good turn out from LRC for race 2 of the Off Road Series, the Dirty Dozen, on Cannock Chase on 29th February. Last year there were perfect conditions for the run as it took place on the warmest February day on record. This year was much colder, muddier and slippier as Storm Jorge hit the Chase and there was a bit of snow in the air.It was also a new route and at 14.5 km was a bit longer than the dozen km it was supposed to be. The ‘Ditch of Doom’ was colder and fuller than ever and was a struggle to get out of: a rubber duck was spotted in it when Yvonne, Jo and Emma swam through. Well done to everyone from LRC who took part. It was a tough race!
