On Sunday 9th August while a number of club members headed off to the Bearbrook 10km Heidi and Linda took part in the 30th anniversary Hooky 6. It’s a 6 mile two lap race that starts and ends in Hook Norton. For anyone who did the Blisworth 5, it was quite similar in that there was a cute village involved and the same degree of undulation (aka hills!).
We both found it too hot and hilly and not a pleasant experience for either of us. Heidi still had her Parkrun PB in her legs from Saturday and Linda had a strained quad muscle in her leg from pretty much the moment we set off! Focussing on the positives though – we didn’t get lost like in our last race (Run the Claydons), it was well marshalled and the goody bag was better:
* Claydons goody bag – medal, water and a Mars bar (race entry £18)
* Hooky 6 goody bag – decent t shirt, commemorative anniversary water bottle, crisps, drink, reflective arm bands (race entry £9 for affiliated members)
Please email the club with details of any races you take part in. Its great to know what people are doing and what different events are out there.
