Event number 120 started with the mercury just off zero at 1 degree. There was a reasonable frost on the ground and 27 runners, joggers and walkers braved the chill to complete the midwinter Christmas addition of the Greytown Woodside trail Run.

Conditions made PBs hard to come by with only Nickee VERSTATEN recording a PB today.

Being it was our Midwinter Christmas Di helped spread the Christmas cheers with a very nice fruit cake and some biscuits which went down a treat.

Were some terrific costumes on display with many rocking the Christmas theme can’t wait for the next instalment of dress up

As always this event can not be put on without our team of Volunteers who braved the conditions and don’t get the benefit of moving much to warm up. Kim GOURLAY, Chris MEAD, Melissa MEAD, Di BAILEY, Craig EWING, Bonnie MACBETH, Vicki WALLER and Ian HUNTER, love your work!

As always most participants travelled to the Offering Café in Greytown to warm up and partake in some great food and compare Strava results.

Remember, on your way to the start, make sure you cross the railway at the lights and not at the platform. Big Brother is always watching... see you all next week!
