Paul Jepson and Tracy Webb took part in the inaugual Little Bytham 5k on Sunday 27th May. It’s an off road event taking in the paths and tracks within one of the regions most picturesque organic farms. The course starts beside the stream that winds through the village, takes in a short section of the former Midland and Great Northern Railway then climbs gradually towards the halfway point.
There is then takes a brief detour through the farm itself before rejoining the railway and the gradual descent towards the finish where there is the option of a splash through the stream, which Paul took, or a dash across the bridge before the short climb to the finish line. The total number of runners was 92 which exceeded the organisers expectations. A challenging little race well worth the £5 entry fee which raised funds for the village hall and Brownies.
