A group of six squirrels battled the wet and windy trails, redways and canal side paths of North Milton Keynes in the aftermath of Storm Eunice at the 10 mile ‘Cattlecreep’.
First squirrel home for the club, Richard Weber, explained the name of the race “as it takes in a ‘Cattlecreep’, (a small, field-to-field access route for farm animals, usually to allow passage beneath roads, canals, or railway embankments). Running through a twenty metre Cattlecreep is interesting because most people, need to stoop to get through it, meaning running through it is pretty much impossible.”
Coming so soon after Storm Eunice, it was still rather wet and windy, with a few puddles, muddy tracks and fallen trees to negotiate. Weber finished the race in 1:21:06, coming 4th out of 22 in the V50 age category, whilst Lucy O’Connor claimed an amazing 1st in V60 age category finishing with 1:26:46. Also completing great runs were Anna Gibson (1:29:17), Russ Hagan (1:29:24), Lorna Chambers (1:41:26) and Brian Judkins (1:59:58).
