Full MoonR*n 315 »


Congratulations to Sir Tom Tom for setting the perfect Full Moon Run.

Not only was it just the right length and in beautiful countryside with a good combination of uphill and downhill and not too much tarmac, but we had superb views of Ingleborough from the hill top beer stop, bright sunlight to start the run, a glorious sunset and that most unusual feature – an actual FULL MOON.

What’s more there were not one but two beer stops with real beer, and not a single fish-hook.

BUT it wasn’t meant to be like that!

It was meant to be long flat and rainy without a view of either sun or moon, just like the fortnight of alternate storms and showers that preceded it.

Sir Tom Tom was out in the rain placing invisible flour by snorkel along flooded riverbanks the same morning, when he had a ‘Road to Damascus’ conversion.

Why stick to the planned valley run along pretty but now underwater riverbanks when a little extra effort could turn it into a B to B run above the flood plane with good views? What matter if it didn’t start from the pub. We had cars to ship the thousands of runners to the start of the run. And very few turned up, the rest having previous experience of a Sir Tom Tom Run that needed Sat Nav to find the finish after hours of endless jogging.

Despite the forecast of more rain 7 people did arrive and enjoyed a brilliant run, supplemented by pub food ordered at the very eleventh hour of service, happily extended by discussion with the pub management.

There were no down downs as all runners performed impeccably and did not sin at all and  - more to the point - the chef was shouting ‘Last Orders’ at the time.

Well done Sir Tom Tom – let’s have many more like that one!
