BHAM! Trail 10k 2019

Another Fab Race Report by our roving Reporter, Rach Webber, I was there but haven’t a clue what happened!! But I would like to thank, Bower Hinton Farm, Bakers Farm, Sparrows Yard, SNC Plumbing, Penn Hill Dental, Paul Holbrook Paving, Active Root, Flanci Activewear, Flying Fox Races, Steve at Immortal Sport, the little old ladies that made the tea and all of you awesome BHAM’ily that supported, made cakes, marshalled or helped in any way!!…. right over to Rach!

Well, what a day it was!

The second race that we have hosted and it was bigger and better than last year. Having learnt some lessons and made a few changes, increased the entry numbers and introduced a kids race this was a step up from last year but the same great route and event was enjoyed by many.

Our friends from Flying Fox.. at least Geoff got to sit down!

The day began very early for some, poor Mrs B-F had no hope of enjoying her sleep!! The early volunteers got there in time to co-ordinate parking, registration and set-up and the buzz around the farm was apparent very early as we welcomed our friends from Flanci Pants and Flying Fox Running, including Geoff.

Busy Reception.. 240 people and a hangover!!

As entrants arrived the buzz began to take hold and everyone was looking forward to a pleasant run in the countryside. The weather was kind to us which added to the enjoyment of the day. The event started at 9:30 with the set off of the inaugural BHAM Trail Kids run, a 2k run for the kids and some of their parents to enjoy. The route for the kids took them down the hill and towards the lake, fortunately all children remained on the path and not having a swim with the angry swan. They returned back up the hill and then back down in to the farm for the finish. All the children seemed to enjoy their run with many finishing with a smile on their faces.

Kids Race was a great success!!

Next up, the adults race. Many runners from the local area and further afield took to the start line for the sold out 2nd edition of this race. Starting on the same route as the children the runners headed downhill and towards the lake, from here they headed through the countryside tackling mud, puddles, styles and road crossings for a fairly level 10k run. The Claire Station at mile  was a welcome sight for many runners, with sweets, water and Active Root available, as well as a lot of Claire Love, has to be one of the best 10k aid stations around.

Adults are off and away!!

As the generous people we are, we had provided around a 10% bonus to the route! The last km provided a physical challenge for all, Cripple Hill was the last obstacle to overcome before a nice downhill finish but what an obstacle it was! Even the race winner wasn’t going to attempt to run it!

Told you it was flat!

Many BHAM runners and BHAMbinos took part in both events, and many more provided the much need support before, during and after. Thank you to you all. Most importantly thank you to Neil & Kate B-F & Rob & Nic Bullock for their hard work and dedication to organising the event! It truly was a great event and so much positive feedback.
