The River Run!

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

21 entries, 20 made it to the start line in the Blue Ball in Grantchester, the finish line of the St Radegund on Kings Street. Adorned with a luminous running number and a list of ten pubs in travelling salesman order each with a half pint awaiting them the competitors set off.

  1. The Blue Ball
  2. The Green Man
  3. The Red Bull
  4. The Mill
  5. The Pickerel
  6. The Maypole
  7. The Haymakers
  8. The Hopbine
  9. The Champion of the Thames
  10. The St Radegund

Two hashers took that alternative longer route, travelling straight from The Mill to the Haymakers, coming back via the Pickerel/Maypole. Polygobbler – the fastest woman and therefore overall winner travelled straight from the Pickerel to the Haymakers and back via the Maypole. Timing to the nearest half minute by Crabbo.

An honourable mention goes to Erica who cruised into the finish looking like she’d had a lovely jog and could do with a nice refreshing pint. Beer Gnome set a new personal worst on the final half pint before lying on the ground wishing he could do the much easier Spartan Race again. The male winner – Jack – rated it as much harder than the Chunder Mile. Cum for Lunch had every half pint out of old running shoes that had been auctioned off in aid of the Childrens society. She’s disqualified from the competition due to wearing most of the beer, but gets to keep the scarf.
