The Rucksack Club Kinder Trial – 25 January

On a day more or less blessed with good weather, at least, until early afternoon when things “took a turn for the worse” Andy Howie’s 2014 Kinder Trial had a straightforward beginning and ending (always excepting there are more ways in and out of Hayfield than I have had hot dinners) with a very entertaining middle section. The route choices in the middle were many and varied and rather like a right back playing against a tricky left winger I ended up with “twisted blood”. I was out just long enough to see the lightening, hear the thunder and step inside the Scout Hut as the hail stones arrived – I would like to claim my timing was deliberate but I would be lying.

This is a thoroughly good race and a terrific day out, one I absolutely recommend although had the clouds been low yesterday I might just have struggled, a bit (a big bit). Anyway, there weren’t and I didn’t.

Thanks Andy and everyone else who helped make it happen Smile
