A Rainy Trunce

Emma Smith has a reputation for having a real turn of speed when chased by stinging insects. We're not sure if any were present in Monday night's (2nd June) Trunce but Emma was certainly on a mission. The conditions were foul to say the least, with heavy rain just before and during the event leading to truly shoe-sucking squelch for most of the 3.8 mile course. Matters weren't helped by the odd patch of angry nettles and the copious reminders that cows share much of the land over which the Trunce runs. Emma simply shrugged the conditions off and finished a superb 4th in her age group. This run was on the back of a successful Doncaster parkrun debut just two days earlier where she managed  a 3rd female overall position.

Also present at the Trunce were Steve W and Rosie Wigg. Rose was deliberately careful as she's still coming through Achilles problems (thinly disguised fell races in wet and muddy conditions are maybe not the best way to rehabilitate) but still managed and a very creditable 25/64 overall in the female field. Steve - who will run on inefficient lines to avoid getting wet and muddy - somehow still managed to finish with relatively clean shoes, a 3rd in age group, and a 27/263 overall position.
