Autumn Leaves Run October 2021
Venue: New Manor Farm Shop, Bishops Sutton (Sunday 17th)
A dry start and forecast, and with the weather still warm for October a possible jeans ‘n jacket day!
New Manor Farm has plenty of room in the car park – and in the cafe, although today the good weather brought out the pedal-cyclists as well as the motor-cyclists and there was a bit of a queue for the pre-run refreshments.
By departure time there was a very good turn-out for the run (slightly more than the management had anticipated and late-comers had to share out route-sheets!) Twenty-eight signed on and several more turned up to spectate and socialise,
The run itself took us out round the lakes, then a wide loop west towards Redhill, crossing back and up over the Mendips, down to Compton Martin again and back to the Farm Shop for post-run ‘inquests’ (and further refreshments…). A good mix of roads and lanes with some grand views from the higher ground.
All who started finished – many thanks to Colin for organising an excellent 38-mile jaunt.
