Kings Garn 2020

Tue 28th Jan 2020


A frosty Sunday morning at Kings Garn Gutter on the 19 January brought an intrepid band of club runners to the New Forest. Results and more. The next race is due at Ashurst campsite on the 16th February.

A cold and frosty morning and brilliant blue skies greeted the 18 men and 6 women of Winchester when they ventured into the Kings Garn Gutter Inclosure on the 19 January. A modified course included a steep finish (off road) and the broken ice puddles proved challenging, but fun. With 6 races completed, competitors require 4 results to post a league position. 7 women club runners can (or have) still achieve this with 2 more races to go. Emma Carter is currently 6th overall and top V40. Meanwhile 19 men are in the same position, with Colin McManus leading the Winchester men with a sturdy 29th overall. Well done to all 24 of you. The next race will take place on the 16th February in the easily accessible Ashurst campsite. 5 miles of gravel and paths, trail shoes recommended, club top. Its a great way to get into competitive running or something to spice up your Sunday morning training.
