I haven’t been out in the Forest Run area much since October, when I did a three-day hike with family – showing them parts that I really love out there. I was also out in the hills in August when I participated unofficially in the annual rogaining event – a run-navigation event held over 6hrs, for which I helped to prepare the map. I’ve missed the hills and forests.
When a neighbour gave me a call last Thursday inviting me for a 20km run, I was in. We got dropped in the area and ran a 20km route back home to Parys. It was fabulous! After generous rains in November and December the area is green and sparkling and lush.
Forest Run entries will open in a few weeks. The event is set for 20 May 2017 so there is lots of time. Put in your training, prepare yourself mentally and check back here or on the Forest Run Facebook page for entry announcements.
