Margery Hill on Saturday 4th February 1995

The Margery Hill was devised in 1984 but not run until 1985. Since then it has never ceased to spring surprises. Twice deep snow has cancelled the race. On the other occasions frozen ground, gales, thick mist and even warm weather have all graced the hills. This year several foolhardy runners donned shorts and, with the temperature over 50F in town, all was set for a brisk run.

Rising out of Abbey Brook, a fierce North Westerly battered the runners and by the time one made High Stones a real epic was underway, made even more interesting by emerging clag. Several chose to go walkabout as usual on or after Margery Hill including the President himself! Alan Sealy looked set for a good run himself but parted company from Roger Woods at the trig and failed to finish. Certainly, the wind was the strongest experienced in the race and another battering was had on Alport.

Surprisingly, except for myself, all last year\'s runners improved their times. Perhaps because last year they wandered on Margery for some long while. One has to go back to 1992 for quick times when 13 beat 2 hours. The winning time was by far the slowest ever. Perhaps the best run of the day was by Howard Swindells but many people looked pleased after tackling a longish effort in poor conditions as an early season \"warm up\".
