I was sorry to read in Strider that the local council has withdrawn its support for this event, so it won't be happening this year. I'm probably the only person who has done it every year since it started (seven years ago?), travelling up from London and fitting it in with a bank hioliday visit to my mum in Stoke. I always enjoyed it, especially the long splishy-splashy run through the Netherton canal tunnel (in total darkness one year when my head torch failed).

I hope it will take place again in future years and I'd like to say thank you to the volunteers who made it happen and were always so friendly and welcoming at the start/finish and checkpoint in between. I'll miss the mini-cheddars and chocolate creams.
