There is a map of this run, view the post to see it
Eleven stalwarts lined up for a good old fashioned soaking on Emlin Ridge; certainly the foulest weather of the season thus far and possibly the wettest wart from start to finish that I've had the pleasure to enjoy in the past four years. It was evident from the outset that conditions were somewhat awry as young Master Harmer arrived resplendent in full waterproof clobber, tops and bottoms. Having splashed our way around the trig, shooting cabins, plantations and reservoir, we repaired to the Nags Head where the loudest cheer of the evening was reserved for the news that rain had stopped play at the Sportsman ... but I wouldn't want to steal Brother Barber's thunder on this matter, who should be along shortly to expand in whatever way seems most appropriate to him. As a coda, Lewis notes - "An article in the Guardian identifies High Bradfield as having gusts of 93 MPH on wednesday night/ thursday morning. No comment is made on the volume of water sloshing about."   Not sure that I can add much to my esteemed colleague's ramblings above. It was a memorable night and will be committed to the "anals" of warting history.  The highlight was receiving the text from our sometime warting colleague who was blacklegging at some other venue, pointing out that the race had been cancelled due to bad weather (pah!) - a term hitherto never mentioned on a warts night!

A classic evening was had by all. It does have to be noted however that whilst the race organiser did postpone his own race he then ruined his birthday further by seriously dislocating two joints on his finger. As such following a pint of landlord and fish and chips he spent 3hrs of his birthday in A&E at the Northern. Classic!

Rain didn't quite stop play at the Sportsman - 2 brave roadies turned up, and 11 stalwarts who were looking forward to Tim's race, not to mention Dave, Alan, Jeff, Dick and Bob who set off early. Sadly we had to invoke the Duckworth-Lewis rules and reduce the race to a run through the woods. It's hoped we can run the race at a later date, but the calendar is looking very full from now on, so no date has been set so far.
