Muddy Bottoms

Last Sunday saw Steve C in action (minus Len who was relegated to spectator) in the LDWA Muddy Bottoms 17 mile event held around Bamber Bridge, Preston. Many LDWA events are thinly disguised endurance cross country / fell races and generally best avoided for people with a weak (or even normal) constitution.

This particular event included a route description and map and a promise of getting wet and muddy - some of the mud was farmyard based; it probably wasn't mud.

Steve managed to form an alliance with a couple of other competitors on about the same pace which helped with the navigational aspects and reported generally having a good time of it; even 'enjoying' some of the more scenic woods and streams sections.

Clocking a 2:58:40 was good enough for a 7/37 overall position and the jogging-back-to-the-car-after-the-event pic makes it look like at the 3 hour point Steve is just about getting warmed up.
