Jo Takes On The Crocodile

Jo Jones, one of Dudley Ladies long list of intrepid explorers writes:-

After the London Marathon I fancied something a little bit different and the Crocodile 8 mile multi-terrain run sounded more than just a leisurely jog round the countryside.

It took place in Tillington near Hereford on a very wet Sunday 25th May.

Luckily the rain did stop for the start of the race, but unfortunately started again just as we left the road for the orchard fields. The fields were bumpy and I was hoping it wouldn't get any worse as I am accustomed to the road.

I was wrong. Next came ploughed fields which, with the rain, were just thick mud. Then it was steep hillside covered in mud. In parts the mud was ankle deep. Everyone was sliding and falling, even those with running spikes. I slipped over twice but was helped by a nice gentleman from Walsall. The final obstacle was yet to come. THE CROCODILES BACK. Over a hundred steep steps, covered in mud.

It was a lovely sight to see the finish line and I was glad to find out that there was still forty more runners to come in."
