Run Rabbit Festival

Thank you to Jackie for this write up

On Saturday 11th May a group of hardy adventurers made their way to an event near Market Harborough, Leicestershire for the first Run Rabbit Festival in the area. There was the choice of 3 different challenges or you could combine them all and camp overnight.

We opted to take part in the first, which was 5 x 5k over trails.

Each run was over a different course, all starting on the hour. Between each run we had to gather our belongings and walk to the start of the next run. As the day wore on the time to reach the next start got shorter and shorter, so that by the last run we just got there before we had to run again.

The courses were all different, some on grass, some on trails and a large number of hills. Fortunately the weather was good because there was no shelter. At the end of each 5k we received a coloured wristband and at the end a carrot shaped medal. – rabbits!!!

It was a fun event but exhausting although Ian Cunningham thought that 25k was not enough of a challenge and had taken part in a parkrun first. Crazy!
