Few mates meet for a jaunt in the North Wessex Downs, and heck, lets get an FKT. Ambitious thoughts of getting through it dry, thinking "no rain on the horizon", however, clay based area, means the water from the torrential downpour the area experienced two weeks ago meant, effective ankle deep mud on basically every path and deep water about, particularly running into Newbury. Everyone thought we were crazy, but we just wanted a coffee. A nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and lets say its our "mini North Wessex spine race"... 

Off the back of not running since our varying ultras over summer/early autumn, safe to say we smashed it out the park!
