Rab Mini Mountain Marathon – 27th May 2016

Six Striders in 3 teams of 2 took on this challenging event. A mixture of fell running and orienteering which was an education for most and despite three teams coming last in their categories much enjoyment from it seemed to be had.

If I may digress… it brings to mind an event I did 40 years ago where each control was compulsory and my section (I was leader) was a bunch of whiney wimps. When I saw an opportunity to skip 1 control and get to the last as the weather closed in, I took it. The sergeant on the skipped control was not a happy man but he seemed to cheer up when he put me on overnight camp guard duty!

You may not have won guys but at least Andy didn’t put you all on guard duty!

Well done – I’m sure you all learnt a lot and will be wanting to give it another go?
