The Tufty Trail Race is over for this year

And what a day it was!

For weeks, the weather forecast had said it would be dry. Then, two days before the race, that all changed. It would be monsoon conditions! In fact, the forecast was so bad that about 50 runners decided to stay in their beds. But in the true trail race way, those who turned up had a whale of a time! A soggy whale, but then whales are meant to be wet!

The event covered approx. 8km / 5 miles in two laps of mixed terrain – predominantly forest trails - within the beautiful surroundings of Falkland Estate. As you would expect of a Pyscho Squirrel race, it included all of the usual 'attractions' and plenty scope for wet feet!

We were overwhelmed with the demand for places and, in fact, we had to extended the limit twice!

Here’s what it was like:

  1. Approx. 8km / 5 miles in two laps,
  2. A gentle, undulating route with no significant hills,
  3. Suitable for novice runners as well as the more experienced,
  4. Medals for all finishers,
  5. LOADS OF OVERALL AND AGE CATEGORY AWARDS,
  6. A special award for the best time from a runner competing in their first event,
  7. SPOT PRIZES,
  8. A MEDAL FOR EVERY FNISHER,
  9. splishy sploshy bits,
  10. Entries cost just £8!

ALL THAT FOR JUST £8 FOR ALL FTR MEMBERS.
